"The dazzling and exuberant comic 'Chronicles' of Rabelais (c. 1483-1552) are a feast of wisdom and laughter. Realism intertwines with carnivalesque fantasy, Renaissance learning with obscene humour to make readers look at the world afresh. Pantagruel, a tale of comic chivalry, satirizes lawyers, theologians and academic buffoons, while Gargantua mocks rash generals, idiotic monarchs and uncouth professors. It champions freedom and laughs at a dirty young giant before he turns into a splendid prince. Sequels lead into more complex and daring laughter and high mythology, often at the expense of Panurge - the mad, word-spinning companion of Pantagruel (who becomes a giant in wisdom, a Renaissance Socrates)." "M. A. Screech's translation captures Rabelais' ingenious wordplay and mastery of language. The introduction explores his individuality while comparing him to Shakespeare, and presents each book to open up the new horizons of Renaissance Europe. This edition also includes a chronology and notes."--BOOK JACKET.

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.

Gargantua und Pantagruel ist ein Romanzyklus, der aus fünf Bänden besteht und zwischen 1532 und 1564 erschien. Gekonnt durchmischt der Schriftsteller sein Werk mit Witz, Ironie, Sarkasmus, Wortspielereien und Komik - was ihn prompt zur Zielscheibe der konservativen Sorbonne-Theologen seiner Zeit machte.

Rabelais' bawdy 16th-century masterpiece, ostensibly the adventures of a giant and his son, satirizes Medieval and Renaissance ideology. Using his ribald humor, Rabelais addresses timeless issues of education, politics, and philosophy.

Mit seinem Romanzyklus um die Riesen Gargantua, den Vater, und Pantagruel, seinen Sohn, hat François Rabelais ein unvergleichliches Werk geschaffen: phantastisch, grotesk, satirisch und obszön, voll überbordendem Witz und von einer sprachlichen Virtuosität, die in der französischen Literatur einzigartig ist, dabei geprägt von einer zutiefst humanen Gesinnung. Wolf Steinsieck gelingt es auf brillante Weise, Rabelais' Fabulierkunst, die alle Register zieht vom ernsten Pathos bis zur derbsten Komik, ins Deutsche zu übertragen und dem heutigen Leser zugänglich zu machen.

Had Rabelais never written his strange and marvellous romance, no one would ever have imagined the possibility of its production. It stands outside other things—a mixture of mad mirth and gravity, of folly and reason, of childishness and grandeur, of the commonplace and the out-of-the-way, of popular verve and polished humanism, of mother-wit and learning, of baseness and nobility, of personalities and broad generalization, of the comic and the serious, of the impossible and the familiar. Throughout the whole there is such a force of life and thought, such a power of good sense, a kind of assurance so authoritative, that he takes rank with the greatest; and his peers are not many. You may like him or not, may attack him or sing his praises, but you cannot ignore him. He is of those that die hard. Be as fastidious as you will; make up your mind to recognize only those who are, without any manner of doubt, beyond and above all others; however few the names you keep, Rabelais’ will always remain. We may know his work, may know it well, and admire it more every time we read it. After being amused by it, after having enjoyed it, we may return again to study it and to enter more fully into its meaning. Yet there is no possibility of knowing his own life in the same fashion. In spite of all the efforts, often successful, that have been made to throw light on it, to bring forward a fresh document, or some obscure mention in a forgotten book, to add some little fact, to fix a date more precisely, it remains nevertheless full of uncertainty and of gaps. Besides, it has been burdened and sullied by all kinds of wearisome stories and foolish anecdotes, so that really there is more to weed out than to add.
