The Legend of Ulenspiegel and Lamme Goedzak is a novel by the Belgian writer Charles De Coster, published in 1867. In the novel, the carnivalized image of Til Ulenshpiegel, dating back to the German folk books of the late Middle Ages, was used. De Coster incorporated in his book many of the original amusing Ulenspiegel tales, side by side with far from funny material - for example, graphic depictions of tortures by the inquisition and auto de fe. Cover design and illustrations are by V. Dvorakovsky, book illustrator and poster artist. Member of the Union of Artists of the USSR. Translated from French by A. Gornfeld, Russian and Soviet literary critic, translator, journalist and essayist. Introductory article is written by B.
