Yalishi. Yalishi was created by the Chinese author Lu Xun and appeared in the serial “Didi Shijie” (Zhejiangchao, 1902-1903).

“Didi Shijie” is a rewrite of Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, with Yalishi being the stand-in for Professor Lidenbrock. Yalishi is an elderly German scientist with a monomaniacal lust for the sciences and for new discoveries. When he hears of a hole in the Earth, he goes in search of it, accompanied by his young student Leiman.
