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.

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: 17th-century , novel , germany , read-in-translation.
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 , core , picaresque. 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.
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.
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.
I think this is a good book if you want to read something very descriptive on how was it to be in that war. The weapons were crude and primitive but you'd be amazed how much you can visualize it with the vivid description written by the author.
As you can see in the dates mentioned in the first paragraph of this review, Grimmelshausen did not really experience that war.
For me, the ability to describe the war vividly was proof enough for his great capability as a writer. The first German novel is a lacerating Sturm und Drang picaresque, a rambling war-scorched epic with a pious vagabond anti-hero, a wisecracking wanderer schlepping the murderous wastelands of the Thirty Years War.
The first novel to use sardonic humour in the face of human barbarity, setting the stage for later imitators Hasek and co.
Whatever, the novel builds to a misanthropic crescendo rarely bettered in any of the many frothing antiwar novels that followed.
Shelves: adventure. In this 17th century picaresque novel Von Grimmelshausen presents the horrors of war through the eyes of a rural simpleton, who witnesses all the cruelties and evils that humans can inflict on one another without understanding them.
I don't remember whose translation I read, but it was certainly pre Mine had a pretty good vernacular style, which I think is important to the effect of the book, which is at once satirical, sad, humorous, and depressing.

Rereading this after many years is like encountering a massive rewrite. Grimmelshausen gives us a peasant's eye view of the war.
One can see how German culture was being shaped by this disastrous war stretching out over a couple of generations.
Simplicius's story begins with his ignorant childhood in t Rereading this after many years is like encountering a massive rewrite.
Simplicius's story begins with his ignorant childhood in the forest, when soldiers come and rape his mother, sister, and the milkmaid, and kill his father, slaughter all their animals, and burn down their house.
The milkmaid staggers out of the barn, all disheveled, and tells the boy to run. The story is bawdy, gross, funny, harrowing, inspiring, instructive, ruminative, and gross by turns.
Always sharply insightful, it demonstrates human habits and views that we share today--and then it steps sideways and gives us a glimpse into manners and views that seem quite alien.
We also get plenty of advice, like on how best to get lice out of your clothes bake them and the etiquette of male servants picking fleas off their boss's wife.
We get a closer look at banquets of the so-called great, and life at all levels. Also, how armies were organized, trained, and run.
Think of this book as a mini series running for a season--it was enormously popular for many, many years. If you don't read German, get a good translation and unabridged so you get the breezy style and the details.
Jun 22, Joselito Honestly and Brilliantly rated it really liked it. I told myself I am not reading, at the moment, any modern novel with its difficult style, convoluted plots and abstruse language which make my eyes redder than they already are.
It has to be an old book written during those less sophisticated times when writers just write to tell stories and entertain.
So I got this, written sometime the middle of the 17th century, originally in German, by a guy with a long name, Hans Jacob Christoph Von Grimmelshausen, a writer whose biography was said to be as I told myself I am not reading, at the moment, any modern novel with its difficult style, convoluted plots and abstruse language which make my eyes redder than they already are.
So I got this, written sometime the middle of the 17th century, originally in German, by a guy with a long name, Hans Jacob Christoph Von Grimmelshausen, a writer whose biography was said to be as shadowy and as elusive as that of Shakespeare, the work carrying an equally-long subtitle "Being the Description of the Life of a Strange Vagabond Named Melchior Sternfels Von Fuchshaim.
Then I blinked again. And again. I realized, that in a consistent monotone the narrator, then a boy of ten, is actually telling the story of how some bandit-like "troopers" had descended upon their household, ransacked the place, held captive his Dad, Mammy and sister Ursula, tortured their male hand, raped their maid, and took everything they can get.
Some who reviewed this here at GR say the family members were massacred. But, spoiler alert, in the end you'll find out they were not.
You'll find out too, spoiler alert, that the Dad and the Mammy were not really the boy's parents. The setting is supposed to be during the so-called Thirty Years War of which I know nothing about and too lazy to google what went on during these troubled part of history.
But I am sure that it was about killings, with crude weapons like bows and arrows, catapults, spears and lances, axes and those stuffs you see in movies with knights and princesses on them.
Anyway, reading this novel would give you the impression that the narrator lived in a world where pillaging towns, villages and kingdoms, soldiering or banditry are honorable professions and the best ways for young lads to advance in life.
In any case, to get on with the story, the boy escaped and went deep into the forest. There he met a holy hermit who, spoiler alert, may have been his true father, but I am not telling.
Not now, at least. Of course, the hermit later dies. For a while the boy lived there like a hermit himself, alone, contemplating in the wild the wise words and ways of the dearly departed saint.
Now, at this point, the reader tries to predict how the story will go. Most readers would think: the boy will grow up handsome and strong, virtuous, a champion of the poor and the oppressed, and avenge, in the end, the wrong done to his family.
This boy, spoiler alert, will do all sorts of things and one of them would be to engage in banditry himself, killing for sport and money, waylaying innocent travelers and killing many of them.
But back to the story, spoiler alert. Some reviewers say this novel portray the horrors of war. Hardly, in my opinion. The language of the narrator, insofar as violence is concerned, is much too sterilized and subdued to evoke any sense of horror upon the reader.
There are humor in how the boy came to be called Simplicissimus; on how he became rich, then poor, then rich again; how he was forced into marrying a maiden under the most ridiculous circumstances; how he--a brave warrior and a feared bandit--was cuckolded; how he became a widower, a treasure-finder, a vagabond; the lies and inventive strategems he resorted to to survive dangerous situations.
Ah, even those which were not written, or had been omitted in the edition that I read , can probably make you smile. Here, for instance, is Simplicissimus, during one of the stages in his life where he was at the top of the 17th century food chain, confessing in the third chapter: " Nor will I deny that I gave myself up to the temptations of the Frenchwomen, that entertained me secretly and rewarded me with many gifts for my services, till in the end I was wearied of so vile and shameful a trade, and determined so to play the fool no longer.
It is absolutely without connection with Simplicissimus's career as an actor in the war; has no interest as a picture of manners; and finally, can be read much better in Bandello, from whose much livelier story vol.
It is therefore omitted here. At the first I ate not with his guests but with his children and household, because I had little money with me: there were but little morsels, that were like Spanish fasting-food for my stomach, so long accustomed to the hearty Westphalian diet.
No single good joint of meat did we ever get but only what had been carried away a week before from the students' table, pretty well hacked by them, and now, by reason of age, as grey as Methuselah.
Over this the hostess his wife , who must do the cooking herself for he would pay for no maid to help her , poured a black, sour kind of gravy and bedevilled it with pepper.
Yet though the bones were sucked so dry that one could have made chessmen of them, yet were they not yet done with, but were put into a vessel kept for the purpose, and when our miser had a sufficient quantity, they must be chopped up fine and all the fat that remained boiled out of them.
I know not whether this was used for seasoning soup or greasing shoes. But on fast-days, of which there happened more than enough, and which were all religiously observed for therein our host full of scruples , we had the run of our teeth on stinking herrings, salt cod, rotten stockfish, and other decayed marine creatures: for he bought all with regard to cheapness only, and grudged not the trouble to go himself to the fish-market and to pick up what the fishmongers themselves were about to throw away.
Our bread was commonly black and stale, our drink a thin, sour beer which well nigh burst my belly, and yet must pass as fine old October.
Besides all this, I learned from his German servant that in summer-time 'twas yet worse: for then the bread was mouldy, the meal full of maggots, and the best dishes were then a couple of radishes at dinner and a handful of salad at supper.
So I asked him why did he stay with the old miser. He answered he was mostly travelling, and therefore must count more on the drink-money of travellers than on that mouldy old Jew, who he said would not even trust his wife and children with the cellar-key, for he grudge them even a drop of wine, and, in a word, was such a curmudgeon that his like would be hard to find; what I had seen up till now, said he, was nothing: if I did but stay there for a while I should perceive that he was not ashamed to skin a flea for its fat.
Once, said he, the old fellow had brought home six pounds of tripe or chitterlings and put it in his larder: but to the great delight of his children the grating chanced to be open: so they tied a tablespoon to a stick and fished all the chitterlings out, which they then ate up half-cooked, in great haste, and gave out 'twas the cat had done it.
That the old coal-counter would not believe, but caught the cat and weighed her, and found that, skin, hair and all, she weighed not so much as his chitterlings.
His wine, too, was well watered and not of a kind to aid digestion: and the cheese which was served at the end of every meal was hard as stone, and the Dutch butter so salty that none could eat more than half an ounce of it at breakfast; as for the fruit, it had to be carried to and fro till it was ripe and fit to eat; and if any of us grumbled thereat, he would begin a terrible abusing of his wife loud enough for us to hear: but secretly gave her orders to go on in the same old way.

Few people have heard of it, and a handful more probably know that it was made into a decent movie directed by the Sydney-born James Clavell also the author of Shogun, King Rat etc and starred Michael Caine and Omar Sharif, with a soundtrack written by John Barry.
Although Pick's book is also about the 30 years' war, he stumbled across Simplicissimus after 'The Last Valley' was published.
Simplicissimus is considered to be the first adventure novel in the German language and the first German novel masterpiece. Set during the tragic conflict that wrecked Germany between , it contains a lot of inhumanity and brutality that is candidly recounted in the first person by its protagonist Simplicius.
Although Simplicius is regarded as a simpleton by his parents and subsequent guardians, his observations are often unexpectedly perceptive and at times downright hilarious.
Anyone expecting long-winded prose will also be surprised to find that the humour in this novel is often unexpectedly crude and side-splittingly funny.
Mike Mitchell's translation of this novel was shortlisted for The Weidenfeld Translation Prize in , and I personally think that he did a great job of sprucing up the narrative and dialogue for a more modern readership.
Simplicius' life takes many twists and turns in what is after all a highly dystopic Germany, and he finds himself playing many roles along the way which include a jester, war hero and even a woman.
Although the pace is brisk the story goes on forever, and anyone wishing for a quick and enjoyable page turner will be disappointed.
The novel also lacks any real goal, being simply a large number of life experiences recounted by Simplicius, so that the reading of it can at times get quite tiring.
That said, it contains many insights into the early-modern way of life both in Germany and beyond, making it a good read for research purposes.

It does not matter much to any one whether Wallenstein was knave or fool, but it did matter that the war crippled for two hundred years the finances, the agriculture, and the enterprise of the German people, and dealt a blow to their patriotism from the like of which few nations could have recovered.
It resulted in the death of millions driving the already fragmented German regions into dissipation. What began as a conflict between Protestants and Catholics resulted in the requisition of military force, then the justification and use of force for gain, whether territorial, political, or personal.
The patchwork quilt of the Holy Roman Empire began to war with itself, using mercenary armies whose allegiance lay not in any ideal, but rather in profit, allowing the rulers and powers to air old grievances, posture for political strength, and to seize power through strength of arms.
The author, a German-born man named Hans Jakob Christoffel von Grimmelshausen, was a child when the war broke out, and was eventually kidnapped by Hessian forces while they pillaged his home.
He was then caught up in the war itself, and grew to be a man during this rather hostile period. The Adventurous Simplicissimus , while occasionally containing obvious myths and fantasies such as witches and mermen, is inspired by his experiences in the war.
The book, itself, is very episodic in nature, with its protagonist, Melchior Sternfels von Fuchshaim later nick-named Simplicius Simplicissimus due to his simple nature starting as a poverty-stricken lad separated from his family in much the same way as the author , being then adopted by a hermit who teaches him language and religion where he earns his Simplicius moniker , is eventually swept up into the war, learns a variety of fighting and survival skills, is servant to a number of lords and rulers, engages in combat for many factions including a stint on both of the opposing Catholic and Protestant forces, along with a number of mercenaries , and undergoes a tremendous variety of fantastical experiences.
But as to knowledge of things divine, none shall ever persuade me that any lad of my age in all Christendom could there beat me, for I knew nought of God or man, of Heaven or Hell, of angel or devil, nor could I discern between good and evil.
It's an amalgamation of satire, philosophy, history, fantasy, drama, comedy, and tragedy; a mixed bag of somewhat random life experiences, told through the lens of a simple fool as he rises above his upbringing, is educated, becomes a warrior, is brought low and high, and earns a host of other descriptors, both good and bad.
In a word; many did count me for a witless madman, while I held all for fools in their wits. And to my thinking this is still the way of the world: for each one is content with his own wits and esteemeth that he is of all men the cleverest.
Having been written in the late 17th century, it is devoid of modern writing conventions, which will most certainly turn away a number of readers.
The story goes, and is told, as the life of Simplicius is lived. Yet what did happen? The fool died and vanished like his own tobacco-smoke.
Then thought I, O thou miserable man! It's a book that is best served by falling into the flow of the language rather than that of the story.
It does not reward hasty reading, but rather the gradual revelation of experiences that expose Simplicius' human frailties as he traipses through Germany in the 's.
It's an almost primary source to a period of history defined by conflict, and that has a great deal to teach a modern audience.
Simplicus' adventures are filled with moral observations and teachings, ones as applicable today as they were four-hundred years ago. The author uses many of his protagonist's vignettes to address the nature of man, the dangers of wealth, pride, lust, and greed, how desperation and fear may lead men to choose terrible outcomes for themselves, and the difficulty of navigating the great number of religious leanings of the day.
With the popularity of political series such as Game of Thrones , or House of Cards , a story like this, where a simple man attempts to navigate vast lands of varying allegiance, religious ideals, and constant danger, it would be easy for a historically-centered retelling of this story to find its place.
Nothing is presented as a finger-wagging necessity, but always as a cause and effect with moral observations sprinkled in for commentary.
He serves as both hero and anti-hero, a flawed character who learns moral teachings, embodies them, relinquishes them when temptation presents itself, becomes his own enemy, and attempts to atone for his mistakes, making even more in the process.
Yet this honour, which I had gained over the heads of old soldiers, though 'twas but a small thing, yet this and thee praise which daily I received were to me spurs to urge me on to better things.
And day and night I dreamed only of fresh plans to make myself greater: nay, I could not sleep by reason of such foolish phantasies.
And because I saw that I wanted an opportunity to shew the courage which I felt in me, it vexed me that I could not every day have the chance to meet the adversary in arms and try the result.
So then I wished the Trojan war back again, or such a siege as was at Ostende, and fool as I was, I never thought that a pitcher goes to the well till it breaks: and that also is true of a young soldier and a foolish, when he hath but money and luck and courage: thereupon follow haughtiness and pride:[ The language, while excellently translated, can be somewhat exhausting at times.
Mixed with the episodic nature of the story, as mentioned earlier, it was best for me to read sections, take notes, and move on to something else so as to keep me engaged throughout the entirety of the narrative.
It's still intriguing enough that I may return to it eventually and may give one of the more modern translations an opportunity.
The Dr. Strangelove of its day. Der Abenteuerliche Simplicissimus Teutsch written in is considered to be the first German novel of importance.
It's inspired by the then popular Spanish picaresque novels and sets out to provide an all-encompassing view of life in Teutschland during the thirty-years war in short humorous episodes seen through the eyes of a seemingly simple mind called Simplicius Simplicissimus.
This is what I expected. What I wasn't expecting and surprised me as I didn't read about this before, is it's natur Der Abenteuerliche Simplicissimus Teutsch written in is considered to be the first German novel of importance.
What I wasn't expecting and surprised me as I didn't read about this before, is it's nature as a moral play on virtues and sins, creed and condemnation.
Grimmelshausen specifically condemns the omnipresent foolery of mankind in their short-sighted quests for money, fame, lust and makes the case for a solemn life agreeable to god.
The thirty-years war only serves as plot, not as content. More on that later. The initial five books cover the years from until the end of the thirty-years war in It starts with 11 year old Simplicius' humble beginnings as an - adopted as we learn later - son of peasants that flees from soldiers to the woods when the farm of his elders is burned down.
He spends two years with a hermit in these woods who teaches him the values of a religious life. As Simplicius discovers many years later, the hermit actually was his real father.
After the hermit's death he's introduced to society as a jester at the Swedish governor's court in Hanau. From there on, stints in various armies and positions follow.
Simplicius is making a career as the famous Jäger von Soest, discovers women and experiences many adventures.
Phases of richness and poverty, arrogance and humbleness - he sums them up as "Baldanders" ever changing in the final chapter of the fifth book - are interchanging seeing our hero at his highs and lows.
The higher he gets the more vain he becomes the deeper he falls again and again. Each ascend carries the seed for another demise. On the success of the publication Grimmelshausen added a sixth book a year later which differs widely from the others.
Moral guidelines formerly addressed indirectly in the story now are the main content. Allegorical scenes alternate with absurd scenes, he even talks with toilet paper!
I guess most modern readers haven't read up to this point. Grimmelshausen already left real world locations for the first time in the fifth book by introducing the phantasmagorial location of an underwater realm in the center of the earth peopled by an intermediate species between man and animal which noticeably can't ascend to god when it perishes but in any other concern reassembles humans; one of the entrances to the realm is the Mummelsee in the Black Forest but other entrances are located all around the world and connected through this realm.
That way Simplicissimus pays a visit to our antipodes. The author follows up on this fantastic travel within the sixth book when the hero finally ends up on a fertile secluded island in the Indian Ocean like Robinson Crusoe.
There he finally finds to god. The last book reminds me of Faust II in its almost complete departure from reality although it's much more readable.
While there are parallels between Grimmelshausen's and Simplicissimus' life, it's not an autobiography. The author and his protagonist are both born in and Grimmelshausen lived in many locations of the book but he wasn't known as a soldier.Nach ausgedehnten Reisen verbringt er seinen Lebensabend als Einsiedler.
