John C. Osborne’s hitherto unpublished translation, Simplicissimus , The German Adventurer, by Hans Jacob Christoffel von Grimmelshausen, is now available to an English-speaking audience worldwide. A searing coming to terms with the Thirty Years’ War and the chaos that it drew in its wake, this early novel is arguably the most important German literary work of the seventeenth century.
