    Myths, Legends and Folklore of China

    How an unburied corpse, with the legs traditionally bound together, may become a chiang-shih, a "hopping ghost", blind but vampiric and with powers that may include flight, long and prehensile eyebrows, powerful breath and the ability to change its appearance; how victims of drowning became ghosts (kuei) until another unfortunate person drowned at the same place (an event that the kuei might therefore initiate); how Monkey escaped from Hell (where he was being punished for his megalomania) but not before deleting the names of all monkeys from the Book of Judgments; how Monkey became drunk while conquering the world, enabling his heavenly foes to send him to Hell; how, during the quest to the Western Paradise, the Buddhist pilgrim Thang Seng disciplined Monkey by means of a magical, squeezing helmet; how the revolting Monkey was eventually captured, and sentenced to death, by Jade Yu-Ti, the Emperor of Heaven, who gave him over to the Taoist master Lao Chun, to be dissolved in the alchemical furnace but even that could not harm the indestructible Monkey; and how Yu-ti and his wife Wang-mu rule heaven and, at one time, aided their earthly counterparts, are among the myths, legends and folktales of China.
