  • Myths, Legends and Folklore of China

    How "swords", made from coins strung together, protected babies from thou-tzu-kuei, the embittered ghosts of childless women (the smoke from burning slippers provided similar protection); how each earthly house had both human and spiritual dwellers, including a kitchen spirit that was bribed with sweets so that he would not give, each new year, an unfavourable report to the Emperor of Heaven; how Monkey stole Taoist master Lao Chun's immortality pills which, as he had already eaten the peaches of immortality, made Monkey totally invulnerable to either age or violence; how a dog married a princess after the emperor rashly promised his daughter to anyone who would bring him the head of his enemy (the dog, a considerate soul, did try to become human before the wedding but the emperor, again rashly, interrupted the magical rite before the dog's head had changed); how the war god Kuan Ti (Guanti) was once an heroic outlaw called Kuan Chung who, after his capture and execution, was in stages promoted from duke to prince and, eventually, deified; the epic of Hsi Yu Chi, the Journey to the Western Paradise, a real event but made fantastic in the tale of how Monkey and Pig redeemed themselves by assisting their holy master in the quest; and how, in Heaven, criminals are executed by a strange, composite creature called a chhi-lin and how, in 1440, a giraffe (called a girin by its Somali captors) arrived at the Chinese court and was equated with the fabled creature, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
