9780685239643: Gargantua (in French)

As a companion volume to Pantagruel, this new edition of Gargantua continues Rabelais acclaimed fantasy of a mythical family of giants. Gargantua introduces Pantagruel s father—another wondrous giant. As he tells Gargantua s life story from his birth and education to his later life, Rabelais uses the events of the giant s life to parody medieval and classical learning, mock traditional ecclesiastical authority, and proffer his own thoughts on humanism and society. Marked with the same warm humor, obsession with food, and scatological wit of Pantagruel, Gargantua is a further striking burlesque on Rabelais contemporaries and a glorious outpouring of Renaissance plenitude.

About the Author:

François Rabelais serait né en 1494 en Touraine, mais aucune certitude n établit clairement ses origines. Il se tourne d abord vers la théologie, puis se rapproche des humanistes et, en 1530, il entreprend des études de médecine à Montpellier. Il est nommé médecin à l Hôtel-Dieu de Lyon en 1532. Cette même année, Rabelais publie Pantagruel qui connaît un succès immédiat
