Charles De Coster: La legende d'Ulenspiegel (Thyl Ulenspiegel with owl and beer mug)

Till Eulenspiegel was an impudent trickster figure who originated in the Middle Low German folklore and was disseminated in popular printed editions narrating the string of lightly-connected episodes that outlined his picaresque career, primarily in Germany, the Low Countries and France. He made his entrance in English-speaking culture late, in the nineteenth century.
