Abstract

Journey to the West, as a famous supernatural novel in ancient China, has created a series of popular characters, especially the image of the group in pilgrimage. But it is undeniable that in the process of pilgrimage, in the ups and downs of the novel plot, in portraying the characters, in this novel with male image as the main narrative carrier, a large number of female images spring onto the paper vividly, leaving a deep impression on the readers. Their appearance adds color to the narrative of the novel and is an indispensable part of the plot of the novel. In view of the secular female image in Journey to the West, the author mainly studies it from the following aspects. On the one hand, based on the text of the novel, the female images involved in the novel are explored and the characteristics of the female images are analyzed and studied; On the other hand, from the perspective of creation, the significance and means of portraying such images are interpreted and the deep connotation of female images is expounded, so as to have a more three-dimensional interpretation on female images in the work. In addition, from the perspective of the social significance of the novel, this paper discusses the social factors of the emergence of female images in the novel and the social reality it reflects.
