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.
