Summary (From the publisher):

The Life of a Good-for-Nothing is a delightful picaresque tale and a classic of German literature. Firmly in the tradition of German Romanticism, it is considered to be Eichendorff's masterpiece.

Despaired of by his father and impatient with his lot, a young man hears the enticing call of life on the road. Leaving his home and all that he knows, he embarks upon a journey in search of adventures and glory. One day enjoying fortune and plenty, the next at the mercy of villains and rogues, his life becomes one full of chance and wonder.
