‘I am going to joust with the lord of the land, for he is a great balloon and I am going to burst him with the sharpness of my tongue.‘
Roll up! Attend the ribald antics of the jongleur, descendent of the great medieval buffoons who scratched at the consciences of Europe, delighting the crowds, infuriating the powerful. Meet head-on his comic cavalcade of rich and poor, angels and drunkards, soldiers, peasants, cheats, popes and donkeys.
The jongleur is a wise fool. He comes to town with a dangerous gospel ‘ thrillingly raucous stories that explode with love of humanity and rant against oppression ‘ and a grin that goes all the way to Calvary and back.
