'The author', the ageing Simplicissimus and his former comrade Tearaway (a
character from Simplicissimus) happen to meet in a village inn. First of all
'the author' describes how he was caught by Courage and her band of gypsies and
conned into writing her life-story for her. In the main part of the novel,
Tearaway then recounts his adventurous life, which takes him through the
horrors of the Thirty Years' War and then to Hungary to fight against the
Turks, later to Italy and Greece. He ends up as a one-legged fiddler,
travelling round Germany, playing, begging, stealing and cheating. The
narrative includes tales of trickery, sorcery and magic, some revolving round
Tearaway's wife, who discovers a magic bird's nest which makes her invisible
and which she uses it for various escapades, including cuckolding Tearaway,
until she is caught and killed. Despite the fantastic elements of some
episodes, the novel is told in the same down-to-earth, often earthy style of
Grimmelshausen's other novels.
