"Shakespeare Summarized" kid tackles classics of world mythology & literature

Recommended Posts

Now she's moved on to the Chinese classics. The entire "Journey to the West" is too massive for one video, but here's the first part of the first part, the story of the Monkey King:

 

 

Whoops! How do I de-embed this and make it a link?

Just catching up on these now. They're SO GOOOOOOOD!!!!! :wub:

 

I read a simplified, translated into Modern English version of Beowulf in 6th grade, so the story actually stuck with me. Your daughter's rendition of it was both informative and highly entertaining (as well as most amusing). She has such a wonderful sense of how to turn a good phrase, it's fantastic. Her animations are awesome as well! :)

 

I've encountered a couple different versions of Journey to the West, both in film, so I actually learned a ton from her video. Very cool! (also, even funnier than the previous one!) 

 

I've read a few Poe stories, but now I want to go read all of them. She does such a fantastic job of summarizing plots in a way that's both amusing and highly accurate. Which just goes to show how deeply she understands her source material. Which is AWESOME. ::D:

 

Also, I think it's neat she's got a buddy in on it too. Even more fun! ^_^

 

I look forward to the next one!!! :bday:

 

Huzzah!

That makes you biased; it doesn't make you wrong.

Thanks for the kind words, folks.

 

That gigantic stack of "Journey to the West" books in "The Monkey King" is made up of our family copies.  I recognize the dings along the spines.
