Yu states that the identity of the author, as with so many other major works of Chinese fiction, "remains unclear" but that Wu remains "the most likely" author.
Regardless of the origins and authorship, Journey to the West has become the authoritative version of these folk stories,  and Wu's name has become inextricably linked with the book.
The novel Journey to the West was based on historical events. Xuanzang — was a monk at Jingtu Temple in late- Sui dynasty and early- Tang dynasty Chang'an.
Motivated by seeking better translations of Buddhist scripture at the time, Xuanzang left Chang'an in , in defiance of Emperor Taizong of Tang 's ban on travel.
Helped by sympathetic Buddhists, he traveled via Gansu and Qinghai to Kumul Hami , thence following the Tian Shan mountains to Turpan. He then crossed what are today Kyrgyzstan , Uzbekistan , and Afghanistan , into Gandhara , reaching India in Xuanzang traveled throughout the Indian subcontinent for the next thirteen years, visiting important Buddhist pilgrimage sites, studying at the ancient university at Nalanda , and debating the rivals of Buddhism.
Xuanzang left India in and arrived back in Chang'an in Although he had defied the imperial travel ban when he left, Xuanzang received a warm welcome from Emperor Taizong upon his return.
The emperor provided money and support for Xuanzang's projects. He joined Da Ci'en Monastery Monastery of Great Maternal Grace , where he led the building of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda to store the scriptures and icons he had brought back from India.
He recorded his journey in the book Great Tang Records on the Western Regions. With the support of the emperor, he established an institute at Yuhua Gong Palace of the Lustre of Jade monastery dedicated to translating the scriptures he had brought back.
His translation and commentary work established him as the founder of the Dharma character school of Buddhism. Xuanzang died on 7 March The Xingjiao Monastery was established in to house his ashes.
Popular and story-teller versions of Xuanzang's journey dating as far back as the Southern Song dynasty include a monkey character as a protagonist.
The novel has chapters that can be divided into four unequal parts. The first part, which includes chapters 1—7, is a self-contained introduction to the main story.
Hubris proves his downfall when the Buddha manages to trap him under a mountain, sealing it with a talisman for five hundred years. The second part chapters 8—12 introduces the nominal main character, Tang Sanzang , through his early biography and the background to his great journey.
Dismayed that " the land of the South i. The third and longest section of the work is chapters 13—99, an episodic adventure story in which Tang Sanzang sets out to bring back Buddhist scriptures from Leiyin Temple on Vulture Peak in India, but encounters various evils along the way.
The section is set in the sparsely populated lands along the Silk Road between China and India. The geography described in the book is, however, almost entirely fantasy; once Tang Sanzang departs Chang'an , the Tang capital, and crosses the frontier somewhere in Gansu province , he finds himself in a wilderness of deep gorges and tall mountains, inhabited by demons and animal spirits, who regard him as a potential meal since his flesh was believed to give immortality to whoever ate it , with the occasional hidden monastery or royal city-state amidst the harsh setting.
Episodes consist of 1—4 chapters and usually involve Tang Sanzang being captured and having his life threatened while his disciples try to find an ingenious and often violent way of liberating him.
Although some of Tang Sanzang's predicaments are political and involve ordinary human beings, they more frequently consist of run-ins with various demons, many of whom turn out to be earthly manifestations of heavenly beings whose sins will be negated by eating the flesh of Tang Sanzang or animal-spirits with enough Taoist spiritual merit to assume semi-human forms.
Chapters 13—22 do not follow this structure precisely, as they introduce Tang Sanzang's disciples, who, inspired or goaded by Guanyin , meet and agree to serve him along the way in order to atone for their sins in their past lives.
