Journey to the West (and East) – A presentation by Singh Albatros
7:00pm – 8:00pm

This year, as the Literary Festival is located on the beautiful Chinese region of Líng xiāo lóng 灵霄龙, we have taken as our theme Chinese myths, legends and fantasy. We will be paying Homage to the great Chinese classic, Journey to the West (the West in this case being India).

Singh Albatros will provide an Introduction to this great work and its role in Chinese Literature at Dragon’s Dreams on Líng xiāo lóng 灵霄龙.

Journey to the West is a Chinese novel published in the 16th century during the Ming dynasty and attributed to Wu Cheng’en. It is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. It has been described as arguably the most popular literary work in East Asia.

Journey with Singh Albatros (aka Chris Mooney-Singh) to learn about the famous late Ming dynasty allegorical novel Journey to the West by Wu Ch’êng-ên tracing the epic journey of monk Tripitaka and his protectors – Monkey, Pigsy, Sandy and Yulong, the magical horse as they go on a quest from China to India in search of Buddhist scriptures. Singh will also read from his own Singapore-based magic realist novel in progress ‘Ghosts on a Bumboat’ which also draws on sources found in Journey to the West.

Chris Mooney-Singh is a published poet, fiction writer and new filmmaker who has been living in and writing from Asia for more than thirty years. Read more about his work here.
