KIRKUS REVIEW

The 16th century Flemish folk character (variously adopted by other parts of Europe, North Germany, particularly) -- part history, part legend, has been told in scores of versions. Here for the first time is a complete English translation of the original epic, rendered by Allan Ross Macdougall, who sees it as a classic comparable to Don Quixote, and important today as symbolic of another struggle for free man. This translation was first issued in limited edition; now in this beautiful popular priced edition with 100 woodouts by the Flemish artist, Frans Masreel.
