Book Summary At the beginning of the novel, in the preface, Rabelais tells us that the plot won’t be tense and that it won’t have a plot twist or a denouement.

The novel Gargantua begins with the description of the life of the main character Gargantua. François Rabelais has books on Goodreads with ratings. François Rabelais’s most popular book is Gargantua and Pantagruel. Gargantua is one of the great works of western literature. I particularly enjoyed this version of the text.

I like having access to Rabelais' original words, but my French isn't advanced enough that I can easily keep up with that, and so it was good to sometimes switch to the more modern French translation/5().

The first book is titled Pantagruel. Although the story takes place second in the series, it was actually published first.

At the beginning of the book, the father giant, Gargantua, and his wife give birth to a son, but the wife dies in childbirth. He grows up to be just as giant as his father, and scholarly. The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel (French: La vie de Gargantua et de Pantagruel) is a connected series of five novels written in the 16th century by François Rabelais.

Gargantua and Pantagruel, collective title of five comic novels by François Rabelais, published between and The novels present the comic and satiric story of the giant Gargantua and his son Pantagruel, and various companions, whose travels and adventures are a vehicle for ridicule of the follies and superstitions of the times.

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 4/5(1).

One of the things that struck me in the first of Rabelais five books was the emphasis on laughter. The author announced at the very beginning of Gargantua that laughter makes us human, and that it is better to laugh than to cry: Il vaut mieux traiter du rire que des larmes parce que rire est le propre de lhomme.
