Gargantua by François Rabelais( Book )

607 editions published between 1534 and 2019 in 22 languages and held by 2,679 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

The histories of Gargantua and Pantagruel by François Rabelais( Book )

2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dazzling and exuberant moral stories of Rabelais (c. 1471-1553) expose human follies with their mischievous and often obscene humor, while intertwining the realistic with carnivalsque fantasy to make us look afresh at the world. Gargantua depicts a young giant, reduced to laughable insanity by an education at the hands of paternal ignorance, old crones and syphilitic professors, who is rescued and turned into a cultured Christian knight. And in Pantagruel and its three sequels, Rabelais parodied tall tales of chivalry and satirized the law, theology and academia to portray the bookish son of Gargantua who becomes a Renaissance Socrates, divinely guided in his wisdom, and his idiotic, self-loving companion Panurge
