Michael Presley’s essay “Sorcerers and Warriors: The Initiatic Journey in Chinese Mythology” is currently the featured article at Angel Millar’s People of Shambhala website. It will be of interest to readers of The Orthosphere. Presley explores the Traditional meaning of two important Chinese folktales using an exegetical framework based on Marshal McLuhan’s theory of oral narrative. Presley is interested, not only in the canonical narratives, but also in their recent adaptation to cinema. The article is here: http://peopleofshambhala.com/sorcerers-and-warriors-the-initiatic-journey-in-chinese-mythology/[.] Presley’s knowledge of Chinese film, in its historical depth, is especially noteworthy. I have been the beneficiary of it for a number of years. Chinese cinema has long since surpassed Hollywood in the technicalities of film making and more than that, contemporary Chinese film is a department of moral narrative — a thing now entirely foreign to the American movie industry.
