Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In the tradition of "fool literature" produced by the ferment of new ideas that directly preceded the Protestant Reformation, Dutch priest, humanist, and scholar Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536) composed The Praise of Folly in 1509. Under Folly's mask, Erasmus boldly attacked the abuses of church and state, and pilloried the faults of those he saw around him: idle superstition, pedantry, religious hypocrisy, and human foolishness. In this elegant translation from the Latin by John Wilson, the reader can savor a great work of satire, which, in the classical tradition, chastises human beings for their follies and excesses, not with a rod but with a smile.

From the Back Cover:

This Norton Critical Edition provides a wide selection of Erasmus's writings, translated from the Latin into fresh, modern, and witty English. Adams has made these selections to emphasize the humane, rather than the doctrinaire, side of the first and greatest humanist.
