A classic fable of German literature, Till Eulenspiegel is a cheerfully scatological collection of 95 loosely related vignettes depicting the life and times of a famous roving jester.
Paul Oppenheimer is Professor of English and Medieval and Comparative Literature at City College, New York. He is the author of Birth of the Modern Mind, Evil and the Demonic, Intelligent Person's Guide to Modern Guilt, and Rubens, A Portrait.
" His Adventures : indeed, Oppenheimer's translation, pleasantly illuminated with eighty-seven sixteenth-century woodcuts, is extremely readable. No doubt, this accesibility will enable a wide public, both academic and other, to encounter once more the 'original' Schwank in all his crude and bawdy tomfoolery." -- Ingrid De Smet, University of Warwick, Renaissance Journal
