A companion volume to Simplicissimus: the story of younggirl named Courage, caught up in the turmoil of the Thirty Years' War,who survives, even prospers, by the use of her native cunning andsexual attraction. Completely amoral, she flits through a successionof husbands and lovers and ends her life with a band of Gypsies. Theconceit here is that Courage supposedly tells her story to get back atSimplicissimus, who treats her dismissively in his own memoirs. Thisis a remorseless tale of lechery, knavery and trickery.
