Gender, rhetoric, and print culture in French Renaissance writing by Floyd Gray( )

24 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 2,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book Floyd Gray explores how the treatment of controversial subjects in French Renaissance writing was affected both by rhetorical conventions and by the commercial requirements of an expanding publishing industry."--Jacket
Le style de Montaigne by Floyd Gray( Book )

42 editions published between 1955 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Montaigne by Albert Thibaudet( Book )

16 editions published between 1963 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En 1933, dans la notice bibliographique de son édition-bréviaire des Essais, Albert Thibaudet annonçait la publication d'un Montaigne. La maladie et la mort l'ont empêché de mener à bien son projet. Seuls demeurent les notes, les fiches et les commentaires qu'il avait rédigés. Floyd Gray a déchiffré et classé toutes ces notes éparses. Les premières remontent à 1913 et ont probablement été écrites à Besançon où Thibaudet enseignait l'histoire ; viennent ensuite celles qui datent de la première guerre et de l'époque où il était professeur à l'Université de Genève ; une dernière série conserve le début d'une rédaction finale sur la vie de Montaigne ; enfin, des pages sur la littérature d'idées en France concluent ce dialogue entre Thibaudet et Montaigne. En effet, Montaigne a trouvé en Thibaudet l'ami qu'il se souhaitait dans les Essais, quelqu'un qui le lirait et le comprendrait. Ce livre n'est évidemment pas celui que Thibaudet aurait donné au lecteur ; il constitue néanmoins un commentaire lumineux sur Montaigne et son oeuvre

"Cette étude s'efforce de cerner la pratique de lecture de Montaigne et d'expliquer comment elle fournit la matière première de son propre livre. Lecteur exceptionnel, Montaigne lit les Anciens en amateur d'hommes, de pensées et de faits divers....Notre lecture de ses lectures comprend la présentation de l'histoire de la bibliothèque de Montaigne, l'analyse de son moi de lecteur et de son dialogue permanent avec ses auteurs, l'esquisse de l'influence de Plutarque et de Socrate, figure emblématique de l'essayiste au travail."--P.

Gargantua by François Rabelais( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in French and held by 86 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
