The first great German novel - an extraordinary recreation of the horrors of the Thirty Years War, written by a veteran of the conflict
First published in 1668, Simplicissimus tells the picaresque, brilliantly described adventures of a boy swept up in the Thirty Years War and the terrible things that he experiences. Some of it is realistic, some fantastical but the overall effect is an unmatched picture of Europe torn apart by an endless, sadistic, futile war from which nobody can escape. The Adventures of Simplicius Simplicissimus was rediscovered in twentieth-century Germany where the book's grim message as a story of the war in all of its horror and absurdity resonated and the book is now established as one of the essential works of German literature.
