Moriae encomium, or, The praise of folly by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus of Rotterdam (c. 1466 1536) is one of the greatest figures of the Renaissance humanist movement, which abandoned medieval pieties in favour of a rich new vision of the individual's potential. Praise of Folly, written to amuse his friend Sir Thomas More, is Erasmus's best-known work. Its dazzling mixture of fantasy and satire is narrated by a personification of Folly, dressed as a jester, who celebrates youth, pleasure, drunkenness and sexual desire, and goes on to lambast human pretensions, foibles and frailties, to mock theologians and monks and to praise the folly' of simple Christian piety. Erasmus's wit, wordplay and wisdom made the book an instant success, but it also attracted what may have been sales-boosting criticism. - Amazon (summary for 1994 edition of this title)

Thyl je nejprve líčen jako bezstarostný, veselý ztřeštěnec a šprýmař. Postupně se divoký tón mění ve vážný, jak si Thyl uvědomuje španělskou krutovládu a inkvisici, jejíž obětí se stane jeho otec.

The black tulip by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cornelius van Baerle, a respectable tulip-grower, lives only to cultivate the elusive black tulip and win a magnificent prize for its creation. But after his powerful godfather is assassinated, the unwitting Cornelius becomes caught up in a deadly political intrigue and is falsely accused of high treason by a bitter rival. Condemned to life imprisonment, his only comfort is Rosa, the jailer's beautiful daughter, and together they concoct a plan to grow the black tulip in secret. Dumas's last major historical novel is a tale of romantic love, jealousy and obsession, interweaving historical events surrounding the brutal murders of two Dutch statesmen in 1672 with the phenomenon of tulipomania that gripped seventeenth-century Holland. This new translation follows the unabridged edition of 1865 and includes a chronology and list of further reading. In his introduction, Robin Buss discusses Dumas's use of elements from the history of the Dutch Republic, tulipomania and the paintings of the period, and places the novel in the context of Dumas's life and career."--Page 4 of cover
The Nibelungenlied by Margaret Armour( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greatest of the heroic epics to emerge from medieval Germany, the Nibelungenlied is a revenge saga of sweeping dimensions. It tells of the dragon-slayer Sivrit, the mysterious kingdom of the Nibelungs, a priceless treasure guarded by dwarves and giants, an Amazonian queen, fortune-telling water-sprites, and a cloak of invisibility. Driven by the conflict between Kriemhilt, the innocent maiden turned she-devil, and her antagonist, the stoic, indomitable Hagen, the story is one of love, jealousy, murder, and revenge, ending in slaughter on a horrific scale. - Amazon
