Review:

"Exciting and brilliant, this is likely to be the definitive translation of The Praise of Folly into English."

From the Publisher:

New translation of one of the greatest literary successes of the Humanistic Age.

Presented here in a new translation which brings out the underlying humour of the original.

Contains additional material which makes this edition unique: one of his lesser-known satirical dialogues, Pope Julius Barred from Heaven, and a selection from his other great work, The Adagia.
