I am studying language arts because I love to read and write.
I am hoping /planning to learn about a lot of different books, and how to make my writing better.
During the course of this class I will read famous pieces of world literature, and write some of my own pieces.
The first of these pieces will be “Monkey”, a translation and abridgment of the famous “Journey to the West”, a Chinese story from the 16th century. Originally written by Wu Ch’eng-en, it was translated by Arthur Waley in 1942. I have a version of this translation from the 1950s.
This is going to be fun.
