Editions and Translations:
Provenance : one early annotation -- J. Jeanpretre 20th-century bookplate. All editions before survive in a few copies only, and virtually none is in private hands. Only one, the Garden copy of Schurer's edition, has sold at auction in over years Sotheby's The present fifth edition is augmented with a letter by Erasmus's friend and fellow humanist, Jakob Wimpfeling. Erasmus conceived of the Praise of Folly while travelling to England from Italy, where he probably had turned down ecclesiastical preferment in order not to compromise his freedom to read, think, and write independently.
It is the most well known of Erasmus's works, a biting satire which criticizes all human professions, from monks and theologians to grammarians, poets, and rhetoricians like himself. Erasmus's inversions and doubles entendres begin with the title, playing with the name of his friend and host Thomas More, in whose London house he wrote the book, and continue by having a personified Folly tell the tale, so that Folly ridicules folly.
The last section comprises statements drawn from ancient and Christian writers that appear to praise folly. In form, Erasmus followed classical models of ironical eulogies by Isocrates, Lucian and Seneca, and infused it with Christian Platonism. Bezzel ; Vander Haeghen , p. London: E.
