A delightful little romp about a wealthy merchant and his debauched household. Spenger of Hencsh, a man of great wealth and immense political power, uses it to achieve the satiation of his immediate desires, including by having his uncle, a prominent Abbot, granting him a dispensation to marry more than once. Spenger starts out bad, and gets worse, growing ever coarser and more spiritually wretched as things progress, his household becoming a den of vice and wicked schemes. The tale ends with his death, and his family's utter ruin.
The book is highly suppressed for its perceived loose morals.
