About This Item

New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 1990. 2nd Printing. Hardcover. 623p. A hardcover book in near-fine condition with a fine dustjacket. Tiny spot of dried glue on front cover; otherwise clean and tight. The jacket is fully intact. English translation of all five of Rabelais' novels from the 16th century.

Synopsis

A masterly new translation of Rabelais’s robust scatalogical comedy Parodying everyone from classic authors to his own contemporaries, the dazzling and exuberant stories of Rabelais expose human follies with mischievous and often obscene humor. Gargantua depicts a young giant who becomes a cultured Christian knight. Pantagruel portrays Gargantua’s bookish son who becomes a Renaissance Socrates, divinely guided by wisdom and by his idiotic, self-loving companion, Panurge.
