Gargantua by François Rabelais( Book )

329 editions published between 1534 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 1,762 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gargantua is born into a long line of eminent giants, and his birth - through his mother's ear, after an overindulgence in tripes - recalls the fabled nativities of the gods of old. Such an auspicious beginning can only herald an equally auspicious life, and it is a life we are led through in remarkable detail, from his early show of genius, by the invention of the best of all possible arse-wipes, through his wide-ranging education, to his adult life and adventures." "Rabelais's hero, the father of his other great invention, Pantagruel, grows up to be a learned, humane and courageous giant, confronting the dual perils of sophistry and foreign aggression. Filled with hilarious and surreal episodes, such as the bell theft of Notre-Dame and the cake-makers' war, together with a generous dose of bawdy and bodily humour, Rabalais's Gargantua equals Pantagruel in wit, warmth and humanistic inventiveness, and offers a striking burlesque on the vacuousness and hypocrisy of his contemporary society."--BOOK JACKET

158 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El prestigio de Rabelais se ha forjado sobre su irresistible y excepcional comicidad, pero lo cierto es que fue un humanista que procuró aunar las tradiciones clásica y cristiana en una tercera, a la búsqueda de un tipo ideal de individuo que se alejase definitivamente de los razonamientos abstractos y «helados» de los escolásticos de la Sorbona, al reencuentro con la calidez de lo humano. Si Rabelais, médico, fue admirado entre sus contemporáneos como un hombre de gran erudición capaz de escribir en latín y en griego, sus novelas le convirtieron en un popularísimo escritor que se divertía haciendo saltar por los aires el lenguaje con sus juegos de palabras y sus razonamientos extravagantes, en un mundo dominado por gigantes y cretinos, borrachos y farsantes
