ESSAY 3 ASSIGNMENT: Wole Soyinka’s Death and the King’s Horsemen ENG 2206 – World Literature II DESCRIPTION Throughout this course, we have emphasized the important differences between genres, time periods, and subject matter as a critical part of reading and writing about literature. However, there are also important similarities between genres, time periods, and subject matter that connect disparate sources to each other and craft a coherent narrative for the development of literature over the past 400 years. Your task in the final essay of the course will be to evaluate these similarities and differences within the context of one central argument about the history of literature from 1600 C.E. through today. Although you will use research to ground your reading of the two texts you choose to compare and contrast, since you are making an original argument based on your interpretation of these texts, the majority of your evidence will come from the texts themselves.

Comparison and Contrast of Wole Soyinka’s Death and the King’s Horseman and Wu
Chengen’s Journey to the West
To satisfy my academic requirement of comparing and contrasting two literature materials.
I will be analyzing the two literature books namely; Wole Soyinka’s Death and the King’s
Horseman and Wu Chengen’s Journey to the West. Journey to the West presents a tale of the
religious journey taken by a Buddhist Monk by the name Xuanzang, who left the Jingtu Temple
in China to go all the way to India in order to obtain translations of the Buddhist scripture. Journey
to the West is one of the most influential Chinese pieces of literature and even belongs to the “Four
Great Novels” which is a group of classical novels which had been classified by many as most
influential pieces of literature to have been made before 1912. According to historical records, the
authorship of this book dates as early as the early 15th century. Its translated version entitled
Monkey: A Folk Tale of China was written in 1942 by Arthur Waley. The entire novel presents
several folk tales and the pilgrimage of a Chinese monk, named Xuanzang. This was a travel which
went against the orders of the emperor of China known as Taizhong and the journey took the
Chinese monk over 20 years before he got to his destination, India. During the journey, Xuanzang
is assisted by several Chinese Folklore such as the Monkey. The monkey grows strong but does
not appeal to some gods and this leads him to get back to the mountain he was born before terming
himself as a “Great Sage Equal to Heaven”. Another companion of the monk is the “Pig of the

Eight Prohibitions” who was also immortal before being expelled from the world of immortals
after his attempts to have a sexual affair with one goddess.
The other book of study in this essay is Wole Soyinka’s Death and the Kings Horseman.
This book was written by a Nigerian author who presents the case of a Yoruba king who died and
the encounters of Elesin Oba – the king’s horseman. After the death of a king, the Yoruba tradition
required his horsemen to die and follow the king in the world beyond. As Elesin prepares to take
the journey to his suicide, he is granted all his wishes such as having a sexual affair with one pretty
girl that he notices. Wole Soyinka also presents a different religion of the British lead by a British
imperialist, Simon Pilkings who together with his wife remains as well as other Yoruba converts
oppose the killing of the king’s horseman, stating it as wrong and barbaric. To enforce his faith,
Pilkings orders the event to be halted and even manages to have Elisen arrested. Olunde, Elisen...
