  Gargantua And Pantagruel, Book 4 (Illustrated Edition) François Rabelais () was a major French Renaissance writer, doctor and humanist. He is regarded as an avant-garde writer of fantasy, satire, the grotesque, dirty jokes and bawdy : This superb set, limited to just hand-numbered copies, replicates Gustave Doré’s masterpiece, hundreds of illustrations for François Rabelais’s seminal text and comic work of genius, Gargantua and five books are published in two volumes, with a brilliant English translation integrated with the illustrations for the first : $

Despite the book's popularity, both it and the subsequent prequel book () about the life and exploits of Pantagruel's father Gargantua were condemned by the "Sorbonne" in and the Roman Catholic Church in –15, –32 Rabelais taught medicine at Montpellier in and again in Born: between and , Chinon, Kingdom of France. Thus begins Gargantua and Pantagruel, a grotesque and carnivalesque collection of exuberant, fantastical stories that takes us from the ancient world through to the European Renaissance. At the heart of these tall tales are the giant Gargantua and his equally seismic son, Pantagruel.

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. * Chapter How Gargantua showeth that the children ought not to marry without the special knowledge and advice of their fathers and mothers * Chapter w Pantagruel did put himself in a readiness to go to sea; and of the herb named Pantagruelion * Chapter the famous Pantagruelion ought to be prepared and wrought.
