About This Item

New York: W.W. Norton & Company [0-393-02843-7] 1990. (Hardcover) 623pp. Fine in fine dust jacket. Translated by Burton Raffel. (Fiction).

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.
