Fable Friday: Chang’e

Chang’e is often described as fairy goddess in Chinese mythology, said to pull clouds across the moon at night. While her story has many variations, from fleeing to the moon to escape an angry king for a husband, or drinking a potion that lightened her body until she floated into space. This story has been retold many times depending on the writer, especially in more modern times. Chang’e is also a focus of China’s mid-autumn festival, where moon-cakes are popularly shared by lovers.
