superlative 5 février 2004
Par Caraculiambro - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Though this book is absolutely excellent (though the style takes a little getting used to), it shouldn't be the first book you read on the Middle Ages.

I say that not so much because the book is difficult, as because it's elliptical. The book has a lot of discussion about themes prevalent in the art and literature of the later Middle Ages, but it's not a "history": it doesn't tell you what happened.

For example, to make a point about fastidious medieval protocol, Huizinga relates an anecdote about the battle of Crecy. But he never explains what the battle was, who fought in it, or why it was important. He assumes you already know that stuff, so don't come to this book looking for a more straightforward history. This is more a discussion of the major themes and movements of the age, divided by chapter.

Another thing you should know: the lion's share of the discussion in the book has to do with the low countries.

classic view of aesthetics and life 22 juin 2001
Par Robert J. Crawford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I first read this book 25 years ago in college. At the time, it was one of those book I just wanted to get through for a grade, but there were details of it I remembered, such as the common practice of sllicing apples into thirds to represent the Trinity.
Well, picking up this book to re-read while living in Europe turned out to be a far greater pleasure than I imagined. Huizinga offers an elegant portrait of an entire era, the Late Middle Ages, in both visual and intellectual detail. You learn about codes of honor, the different ways in which life was perceived, and the practices of love. It is beautifully written and vivid.
There are limitation to the approach, of course. It is not about economics or living standards. It does not function as a survey, and hence the reader must have solid knowledge of medieval history before starting the book. You will have to get these elsewhere. But if you come to this book with the right expectations, it is fascinating and wonderful from cover to cover.
Warmly recommended.

A classic 17 décembre 2006
Par Andres C. Salama - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Written originally in dutch in 1919 (the first english translation appeared in 1924), this is a classic of medieval historiography. Huizinga's main thesis goes something like this: the black death of the late 1340s, which decimated European population, brought as a result a morbid sensibility to European culture. It meant also a return to religion, as the cult and veneration of saints grew enormously during the last half of the 13th century and throughout the 14th century. This would bring in excesses of its own, and would lead the way for the reformation of the 15th century to counter it. But the book is more than just the lay out of this thesis, as Huizinga show us the daily life and thoughts of the late middle ages (based mostly from french and flemish sources) in a very vivid way.

Chivalry is not dead, it may never have lived! 7 octobre 2003
Par Riccardo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
How many of us can clearly remember specific ideas from the books we read as undergrads in the mad rush of our youth? But in reflective moments I find myself turning over one more time the chief idea discussed in the abridged paperback translation of this work: that Chivalry was an "aesthetical ideal", praised and alluded to everywhere in the European art and politics of the Middle Ages, yet practiced by few. I've learned to see much of the stock language of art, politics, and diplomacy of our own time through the model of the "aesthetical ideal": democracy, peace, and equality fit the concept. A good idea is worth the price of a book...

Wonderful book...it MUST be put into print again!! 16 juin 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book deserves more than 5 stars. I can't believe it out of print! It must be because of the new and rather sterile translation: the Autumn of the Middle Ages. The new translation leaves me cold. The Waning of the Middle Ages made a very deep impression on me in college. It is one of the few books that I have read completely through twice (not simply read portions of later)...I will refer back to it for the rest of my life. It is a splended fusion of literature and historical vision. Everyone I know who studied any medieval history was asigned this work and loves it still. Everyone remembers the openning phrase, "When the world was half a thousand years younger..." Today's students should be able to obtain this marvelous gem.
