Abstract: This paper attempts to show how Li Ju-chen's Ching Dynasty narrative Ching-hua yuan (also known as Flowers in the Mirror) and Richard Brome's (c. 1590-1652) Renaissance travel play The Antipodes can be appreciated from the perspective of Menippean characteristics of intertexuality, bizarre journey, exotic overseas worlds, utopain yearning, grotesque creatures, reversed observation of a normal world, satirical critism on established life mode or current trend. Li Ju-chen wrote his travel narrative in 1828, about 200 years after publication of The Antipodes (1640). There seems no possibility of contact between two literary works; speculation of imitation and influence between them seems out of the question. It is thus greatly interesting that works of different eras, places, and social cultures resemble one another's Menippean traits. Hence it can be assumed that Menippean qualities are not confined to Westerners; they lie underneath all human imagination.
