Please note: I read this book probably in 2003 or so, and wrote the review a long time ago, so please don't judge by my current standards, but I'm wanting to get this book "out there", so am reposting this review.How I Came to Read This Book: My husband had this book and recommended that I read it. It is a large tome and I approached it with a bit of trepidation, expecting something Dickenson, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It is very approachable and highly readable. My Synopsis: This boo [...]

Перечитала. Кажется, стала понимать немного больше, но всё равно к середине запуталась в исторических личностях и географии. Никак не могу воспринять всю Легенду целиком, распадается на мелкие истории о народном герое и его окружении. Все герои очень аппетитно едят, так и х [...]

Ovo izdanje sadrži petodelni roman i zbirku priča. Zbirka priča je iz XIV veka, pisana nemačkim jezikom i autentični je prikaz Tilovog "stvarnog" života lakrdijaša. Međutim, on nije bio čist lakrdijaš i dvorska budala, kao što to obično biva. On je metaforički junak nemačkog naroda, koji je tu da ljudima "stavi" naočari na oči i natera ih da se pogledaju u ogledalu (otuda i iskrajanje kovanice njegovog nadimka - sovuljagino ogledalo). Sve to kroz pregršt narodnih umotvorina (sli [...]

Something really fabulous and incredible!

Никоя книга не попада току-така в колекция „Върхове” на издателство „Изток-Запад”. „Тил Уленшпигел” на Шарл де Костер също не е случайна. И никоя творба в колекция „Върхове” не се издава току-така, без първо да бъде подобаващо илюстрирана. А и Петър Станимиров не е случа [...]

The harsh living standards and brutality with which these people lived during the Spanish Inquisition and struggle for dutch independence is mind blowing. Scenes of torture are described in truly horrific detail. The prints are absolutely breathtaking. But the way Tyl, our hero, deals with this mistreatment and struggles for peace of mind and righteousness through, oddly enough, clowning, is heartening and extremely strengthening to the spirit.I was so upset and enamored and moved by this book I [...]

Having read the book in Russian, I fell in love with Tyl at an early age. His transformation at the hands of inquisition is breathtaking. The powerful refrain repeated throughout the book when Tyl is about to act, and say anything dangerous, "the ashes of my father are beating near my heart" is the driving force for most of the latter part of the book. The tale of Tyl may be very old, but its relevancy is everlasting.

Луда, сурова и комична.

I knew the music inspired by this book before I knew about the book, so I thought it was high time I read it. I will just find the correct CD and put it onThis is a novel incorporating some scatological low German folk tales. The name Ulenspiegel most probably originates from the low German 'ul'n Spegel' rather than the high German 'Eule und Spiegel'. Tyl is still a trickster, but de Coster has also made him something of a Flemish Protestant resistance hero. He is alternately cadging food and sp [...]

non lo consiglio proprio a nessuno, ma è uno dei 2 libri della mia vita e per lui ho più che un'affezione. Letto per la prima volta in questa splendida edizione strenna dell'Unità degli anni '60 ha determinato alcune delle mie (ancora) più durature passioni: i paesi bassi, storia, arte cultura

Вперше прочитав Улешпігеля у сьомому класі - і читав саме українською. Загалом, те, як і яка ця книга потрапила мені до рук є дещо неймовірним збігом або, ймовірніше, дивом. Хтось з однокласниць (пам'ятаю хто) подарував мені Тіля на 23 лютого - це перша складова дива, тому що заз [...]

I first read this in 1995 or 96 when I was a kid, I remember going through the whole book in a day or two, my eyes were red when i finished the last page It was surreal, as if all the characters from the novel became alive and everything started happening right before my eyes.Simply amazing. Clever and funny, sad and scary, and above all unbelievably free spirited. How much soul was put into writing this book is beyond words

ashes of Klaas is knocks on my heart!

В семье угольщика Клааса родился долгожданный сын, которого назвали Тилем. Рос он весёлым и гораздым на выдумку мальчишкой, любил шутки и розыгрыши, а обострённое чувство справедливости заставляло его порой творить то, что обычный человек делать поостерёгся бы. Но благода [...]

My husband had this book and recommended that I read it. It is a large tome and I approached it with a bit of trepidation, expecting something Dickenson, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It is very approachable and highly readable. This book is, basically, about the life of Tyl Ulenspiegl, from his birth, following him as he grows into manhood. He is a highly charismatic person and, although it is a bit of a detriment in the times he lives in (set in the earliest years of Christianity, when [...]

“La légende et les aventures héroïques, joyeuses et glorieuses, D'Ulenspiegel et de Lamme Goedzak au pays de Flandres et ailleurs” provides a picaresque tour of the Spanish Netherlands during the Dutch War of Independence (1566–1609). The novel is at once a compendium of medieval tales, an attack on autocratic monarchies and an anti-clerical manifesto. As a practicing Catholic I detested the work, but I must admit that in certain respects it is rather well done.As the author attempts to [...]

Tijl Uilenspiegel van Charles de Coster, gelezen in een editie van uitgeverij Voltaire uit 2007, met tekeningen van Peter van Hugten.Het eerste boek dat ik ooit kocht bij de boekhandel die ik ook nu nog frequenteer.Tijl, Tijl kennen we allemaal, Tijl is de olijke, daar kennen we eigenlijk slechts vrolijke verhalen van. Tijl en Lamme die de boel op stelten zetten.Dat is slechts één zijde van dit boek, het is namelijk ook een aanklacht en wellicht een niet geheel historisch correcte inkijk in he [...]

Gelezen in de Nederlandse vertaling van Chris van de Poel.Omvangrijke roman over de legendarische figuur Tijl Uilenspiegel, die De Coster ferm in De Nederlanden van de zestiende eeuw plaatst, en na enkele (semi)citaten van zijn legendarische potsen, opvoert als een geuzenstrijder in de Nederlandse opstand.Aldus komt Tijl vele historische personages tegen, zoals Alva, Willem van Oranje, Brederode en Admiraal Lumey. Maar het zijn Tijls naasten die het meeste indruk maken: de almaar etende Lamme Go [...]

Тиль Уленшпигель — герой народного творчества. Подобных ему можно найти во всех уголках мира. Достаточно вспомнить про Ходжу Насреддина, что также на осле путешествовал по арабскому Востоку, ёрничая и подтрунивая над каждым встречным. Таким же ярким персонажем является г [...]

One of the most favorite books of my childhood. I reread it and, surprisingly, found it as captivating as before. The book is a heroic fable of liberation of Flanders from the Spaniards hull of funny and scary adventures of brave and witty Tyl and fat and kind Lamme. The whole story is reeking of Rabelaisian humor and Flemish Sturm und Drang. Basically it is not even a novel, it is a poem with its own rhythm and various refrains. A good book to read as a young person, because it is full of heroi [...]

Hm. Wel leuk om eens een schelmenroman te lezen (en wellicht één van de beroemdste), maar het is niet echt mijn ding. De wel erg beeldend beschreven folteringen zijn niet bepaald geschikt voor tere zieltjes en het enorm bijdehante gedrag van Tijl Uilenspiegel wordt op den duur wat irritant en voorspelbaar. De hoofdstukken hebben onderling bovendien weinig samenhang, waardoor het af en toe meer op een reeks korte verhalen lijkt. Er zitten wel leuke gebeurtenissen tussen, vandaar toch nog twee s [...]

I read this book in a teen age and I was very fond of it. It's like Don Qixote and Sancho Pansa - Flemish Edition, only Qixote is more pragmatic and Pansa is fatter )) One of the best books to get familiar with the history and culture of medieval Benelux countries. It's heroic, romantic, somewhat pagan, anti-war, anti-religious, anti-totalitarian, anti-brainwashing, in short, VERY HUMANISTIC!

Tot mijn verbazing bleek dit feitlijk in het Frans geschreven te zijn. Toch staat het bij de Vlamingen hoog aangeschreven. Typisch, zou ik zeggenHet verhaal is bekend, maar gaat niet over de grappen van Uilenspiegel, maar eerder over het droeve wel en wee van de bevolking in de roerige tijden van de Opstand der Nederlanden. Het werk zelf kon mij maar matig boeien.

read a cheap edition during the busdrives to and fro to work at that time. in the midst of happy noisy schoolkids. trains stocked with silent and devoted people heading for office is not the right place to read these stories.

Long ago I read the Flemish version, which I can't find here on . The one I read is out of print anyway.I read it when I was about 16, and I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy reading it again, now at 59.

non lo consiglio assolutamente a nessuno, ma è uno dei 2 libri della mia vita e non poteva non stare qui. Letto in una splendida edizione strenna degli anni '60 che ha determinato alcune delle mie (ancora) più durature passioni: i paesi bassi, storia arte cultura

One of the best gifts ever. Thank you, Dad!

Boek 1

Perhaps the best book about food ever.

Otra de mis viejas glorias, no sé cómo aguantaría el paso del tiempo, la verdad, pero me voló la cabeza en su día.
