Gargantua and Pantagruel by François Rabelais( Book )

628 editions published between 1542 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 7,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel (in French, La vie de Gargantua et de Pantagruel) is a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century by Franco̧is Rabelais. It is the story of two giants, a father (Gargantua) and his son (Pantagruel) and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein."--Wikipedia
Gargantua by François Rabelais( Book )

636 editions published between 1534 and 2016 in 21 languages and held by 2,810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gargantua is born into a long line of eminent giants, and his birth - through his mother's ear, after an overindulgence in tripes - recalls the fabled nativities of the gods of old. Such an auspicious beginning can only herald an equally auspicious life, and it is a life we are led through in remarkable detail, from his early show of genius, by the invention of the best of all possible arse-wipes, through his wide-ranging education, to his adult life and adventures." "Rabelais's hero, the father of his other great invention, Pantagruel, grows up to be a learned, humane and courageous giant, confronting the dual perils of sophistry and foreign aggression. Filled with hilarious and surreal episodes, such as the bell theft of Notre-Dame and the cake-makers' war, together with a generous dose of bawdy and bodily humour, Rabalais's Gargantua equals Pantagruel in wit, warmth and humanistic inventiveness, and offers a striking burlesque on the vacuousness and hypocrisy of his contemporary society."--BOOK JACKET

XXXV-LI. [SDM]
Pantagruel; première publication critique sur le texte original by François Rabelais( Book )

224 editions published between 1532 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From his mythical lineage and portentous birth, it is clear that Pantagruel is destined to be a very special giant. His adventures, his exploits and even his friends - most notably the lecherous, foul-mouthed Panurge - are all larger than life. Yet despite the hyperbolic and disproportionate nature of anything connected to him, Pantagruel's history is told with breathtaking lightness and wit. Filling his pages with ingenious new coinages, and an unashamed obsession with the scatological side of life, Rabelais blends prose and poetry, the sacred and the profane, to offer a heady satire of the religious society of his day."--Jacket
