This 17th century picaresque novel is the first person account of the adventures of Simplicius, a young man growing up amid the violent disruptions of the Thirty Years War.
He begins as a country bumpkin, but in the course of his journey takes up many professions, roles, and disguises: apprentice hermit, stable boy, court fool, common soldier on both sides of the conflict guerrilla commander, freebooter, sneak thief, lover, husband, masquer, adulterer, female prostitute, merchant, world travel This 17th century picaresque novel is the first person account of the adventures of Simplicius, a young man growing up amid the violent disruptions of the Thirty Years War.
He begins as a country bumpkin, but in the course of his journey takes up many professions, roles, and disguises: apprentice hermit, stable boy, court fool, common soldier on both sides of the conflict guerrilla commander, freebooter, sneak thief, lover, husband, masquer, adulterer, female prostitute, merchant, world traveler, wealthy noble, and The author doesn't seem to be much concerned with character development.
Although our hero tells us at the end of the narrative that he has become disillusioned with the world, we would have never inferred this from his actions or his tone, for he seems much the same as before, his disillusionment little more than another mask.
The novel, however, makes up for its lack of character development through its precise, inventive narrative, crowded with incident and teeming with life.
Perhaps the most impressive thing about this book is the way it can move abruptly from homespun humor to bloody battle raid, from fart jokes of which there are many to the torture of civilians, from rogues' tales of trickery to a mock scholastic lecture and then on to a genuine encounter with the occult.
Some of this is just part of the picaresque design or lack of it , but it also seems to me that the author wishes to communicate something about the arbitrary violence of war, that it not only encourages randomness but also deprives the person who is immersed in it of the ability to be either surprised or shocked.
This book is uneven, and I never wished it longer. Many scenes, however the war atrocities, the "school" for professional fools, the witches sabbath, and Simplicius' encounter with the mermen who live beneath a local lake were vivid, memorable and amusing.
If someone asked me where they could learn what it was like in war-torn Germany during 17th century, I would without hesitation send them to this book.
And I don't even like fart jokes. View all 5 comments. Jun 16, Warwick rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , switzerland , france , holy-roman-empire , germany , thirty-years-war.
Sometimes described as the first great German novel, Simplicissimus is a big, flatulent, romping picaresque that careens its way across the patchwork of German states at the height of the Thirty Years War.
In its mixture of realist war commentary, knockabout scatology, and magic-realist flights of fancy, it comes across as something like Rabelais meets Goya's Disasters of War.
Simplicissimus, as a child, is spared long enough to escape to live wild in the forest. The harsh naturalism of these early scenes, and others like them throughout the book, is still genuinely shocking, and has a documentary interest; much of it is thought to be autobiographical.
From there, our ingenuous hero travels up to Westphalia and down to the Breisgau, with excursions to France, Switzerland, and the centre of the earth, fighting at various times on both sides of the conflict.
Like many picaresque novels, Simplicissimus presents the world as a place of endless opportunity, novelty and adventure; and yet the wartime realities give it a grounding in real life, and a consequent seriousness, that I find somewhat missing in, say, its more famous contemporary Don Quixote.
Though occasionally moralistic, it's never boring, if only because the genre shifts almost as often as the setting — from satire to fantasy to religious allegory to shaggy-dog story.
One minute he's expatiating on the importance of Christian virtues, the next he's devoting a whole chapter to how he farted at an inopportune moment.
At times too it is fascinatingly subversive. Despite all the fighting, the only real description of wartime combat we get is a parodic one, when Simplicissimus goes off alone into the woods to kill the lice infesting his body: I took off the cuirass, even though others put one on before going into battle and started such a massacre that soon my two swords — my thumb-nails — were dripping with blood and covered in dead bodies.
Those I could not kill I sent into exile, wandering under the tree. Which one should I believe? In any case, this strange and exuberant novel is of much more than historical interest — full of life, and learning, and delights that have been snatched from a capricious world.
A world closer to us than we sometimes remember. View all 9 comments. Jan 26, Jan-Maat added it Shelves: novel , germany , read-in-translation , 17th-century.
A lad is given a set of bagpipes, and the way he plays them would kill a wolf if it had musical taste , and is sent out to mind the sheep.
In hindsight, the narrator thinks, wasn't this the best upbringing parents could give a child, seeing as King David also started out in life as a shepherd?
So begin the adventures of Simplicissimus, an early novel written in the seventeenth-century, set during the thirty years war which soon sweeps up the narrator and carries him into the conflict.
Catholic o A lad is given a set of bagpipes, and the way he plays them would kill a wolf if it had musical taste , and is sent out to mind the sheep.
Catholic or Protestant seem to be much the same, occasionally organised banditry rather than grand strategy or big battles is what we see as Simplicissimus grows up.
It has a certain type of humour, as in the men who realise that their hangovers prove how far the German nation has degenerated since clearly their grandsires could drink all night and have a clear head the next morning, but also a certain degree of darkness as when the same men realise it might be fun to trick the young Simplicissimus that he has died and been reborn as a cow by getting the boy blind drunk and then stitching him up inside the skin of a calf.
As a boy-calf playing the part of a Fool the narrator becomes a truth-teller. A figure on the margin who can point out the absurdities of life to those who have power and authority, though he does go on to escape and take a more active part in the ongoing war.
I read a different, older translation to the one here on Goodreads. Grimmelshausen wasn't immune to the lure of writing sequels and the version I found had abbreviated versions of some of the continuations of the story including Simplicissimus', as far I remember, not very good adventures in Russia.
It's the earliest part of the story which is the strongest and most interesting. View all 7 comments. Jan 10, K.
Absolutely rated it really liked it Recommended to K. Shelves: german , ebook , picaresque , core. This is one of the ancient books in the Books You Must Read Before You Die that I really liked.
Originally written in German and published in by German author Hans Jakob Christoffel von Grimmelshausen , the autobiographical book is considered as the first adventure novel in the German language and greatest German novel of the 17th century.
Its backdrop is the Thirty Years' War that was said to be the longest and the most destructive conflict in European history. It was also one of the longest continuous wars in modern history.
The original issue in this war was the conflict between Protestants and Roman Catholics in the Holy Roman Empire. However, it spread throughout Europe with other issues involved and with Germany being the most devastated in the end.
The story is about a boy baptized by a hermit this name Simplicius Simplicissimus because the hermit thinks that he is simple-minded.
The narration is episodic, does not have a big cohesive theme and similar to the language used by John Bunyan in religious work, The Pilgrim's Progress 3 stars.
However, this one is a picaresque novel, i. Picaresque genre originated in sixteenth century Spain and flourished throughout Europe in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
The Spanish novel that started this genre was La vida del Lazarillo de Tormes 3 stars. Picaresque novels or those with picaresque elements are still being written even up to now.
Recent examples of these are Iris Murdoch's Under the Net 1 star and Aravind Adiga's The White Tiger 1 star. Well, this is my first time to have given a 4-star rating to a picaresque novel.
Maybe I am truly maturing when it comes to appreciating different literary genres. I think my main issue with picaresque before was its being episodic.
I have many favorite scenes here but the one that really left a mark on me is that scene when the Thirty Years' War is being described. Bandzone Theme made by Musicians View Detail Live Preview.
