Gargantua by François Rabelais( Book )

369 editions published between 1534 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 1,864 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
Pantagruel; première publication critique sur le texte original by François Rabelais( Book )

256 editions published between 1532 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,562 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

Gargantua and Pantagruel by François Rabelais( Book )

26 editions published between 1927 and 2016 in English and French and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in four volumes between 1532 and 1552, Rabelais' comic masterpiece chronicles the adventures of a giant, Gargantua, and his son, Pantagruel. More than four centuries later, the terms "gargantuan" and "Rabelaisian" are synonymous with earthy humor, a surfeit of good food and drink, and pleasures of the flesh. This series of exaggerated fables was condemned upon its initial publication by the censors of the College de la Sorbonne. But beneath their bawdy, often scatological wit, the tales bear a deeper significance as the author's defense of daring and groundbreaking ideas. Using his ribald humor, Rabelais addresses timeless issues of education, politics, and philosophy. His parodies of classic authors as well as his own contemporaries offer a hilarious expose of human folly and an enduring satire of history, literature, religion, and culture. This edition features the classic translation by Sir Thomas Urquhart and Pierre le Motteux"--
