Two distinct and separate crimes, the murder of a police constable in pursuit of a burglar who had just stolen some ten thousand pounds worth of diamonds, and the attempted poisoning of an avant garde potter. Seemingly, the point in common between the two is the attending physician, one Dr. Oldfield. But that learned gentleman, the eminent expert in Medical Jurisprudence, Dr. John Waterberry, has his suspicions centered on a crude piece of modernist pottery. Of course, it is only a matter of time before the good doctor discovers the secret of . . . The Stone Monkey!

The Story Of Stone

In this pathbreaking study of three of the most familiar texts in the Chinese tradition—all concerning stones endowed with magical properties—Jing Wang develops a monumental reconstruction of ancient Chinese stone lore. Wang’s thorough and systematic comparison of these classic works illuminates the various tellings of the stone story and provides new insight into major topics in traditional Chinese literature. Bringing together Chinese myth, religion, folklore, art, and literature, this book is the first in any language to amass the sources of stone myth and stone lore in Chinese culture. Uniting classical Chinese studies with contemporary Western theoretical concerns, Wang examines these stone narratives by analyzing intertextuality within Chinese traditions. She offers revelatory interpretations to long-standing critical issues, such as the paradoxical character of the monkey in The Journey to the West, the circularity of narrative logic in The Dream of the Red Chamber, and the structural necessity of the stone tablet in Water Margin. By both challenging and incorporating traditional sinological scholarship, Wang’s The Story of Stone reveals the ideological ramifications of these three literary works on Chinese cultural history and makes the past relevant to contemporary intellectual discourse. Specialists in Chinese literature and culture, comparative literature, literary theory, and religious studies will find much of interest in this outstanding work, which is sure to become a standard reference on the subject.
