  • Good fellow pantagruelists, join us in our feast Trinck Read Pass another pint of tripe All you pouty agalasts, I fart upon you To the devil with you, you black beetles, you dull and dappled drips Here we make it merry Pantagruelists of , unite You have nothing to lose but the contents of your bowels Trinck Laugh Burst Properly to give Rabelais his due, to pursue you and persuade you that as our Good Book says , Pantagrueling is the beginning of wisdom, would require the subtlety of a soft shoe [...]

  • You know what philosophy needs Fran ois thought to himself More fart jokes And excrement jokes Also some obscenity, blasphemy, over eating, and sex Ooh, and giants But most of all, fart jokes.Personally, the philosophical discourses were the part I found most interesting, but if you think several hundred pages of various characters calling one another prattling gabblers, lickorous gluttons, freckled bittors, mangy rascals, shite a bed scoundrels, drunken roysters, sly knaves, drowsy loiterers, [...]

  • An Exuberant MasterpieceThis novel is almost 600 years old, yet it s hugely entertaining, far so than I had expected.In both content and style, there were times when I couldn t have guessed when it was written.It s no longer argued that it was the first ever novel However, its narrative diversity highlights that the institution of the novel has always been about stylistic innovation and that there is little that differentiates the origins of the novel from subsequent Modernism and Post Modernis [...]

  • That is why, Drinkers, I counsel you to lay up a good stock of my books while the time is right as soon as you come across them on the booksellers stalls you must not only shuck them but devour them like an opiatic cordial and incorporate them within you it is then that you will discover the good they have in store for all noble bean shuckers Reading Rabelais over the last few months has been an enlightening and perplexing and stimulating pleasure, a delirious encyclopaedic cornucopia of codpiec [...]

  • I miss having time to write reviews But you pick something up and something has to fall from you Human hands hold very little A skull blinks centuries have dusted awaySince RabelaisI miss having time to readUninterrupted hours and time to think about what I readBut we take on other tasks knowing we must make and remake ourselves and the ones we care about every day all day A chisel is a tool against time, but one starts feeling stupid chiseling at wind really I still have time to readAnd remembe [...]

  • Rabelais is not to be skipped in literary history as he is a source of so much proverb, story joke which are derived from him into all modern books in all languages Ralph Waldo EmersonIt is perhaps one of the most reassuring aspects of reading great books of the past how often you come across an individual who lived in a different time and place, who spoke a different language and held different beliefs, whose life was shaped by none of the same technologies or institutions but who is nonetheles [...]

  • How to describe this book You don t describe it, you read it, hahahaha This book is absurd It makes me think absurd things and make stupid jokes It has some funny moments, yes, but it s sort of like when you re with that one funny friend who just takes it all a step too far and can t let a joke go, and pretty soon it s just like, Yeah, dude, shut up already That s how it felt reading Rabelais and his fart joke after fart joke, references to other bodily functions and other dirties, and absurdity [...]

  • Rabelais The foreman of farts The sheik of shit The rajah of rectums The first joke in the world was a fart joke Sophocles, Shakespeare, Melville, all liked fart jokes Louis CK calls the fart the perfect joke But no one has ever farted like Rabelais.Here s the dirty truth if you re not super into 1100 pages of 16th century fart jokes, you can read the first two books and skip the rest I KNOW Only assholes do that Look, you don t have to take my advice, I don t care, I m just kids still say keepi [...]

  • SeptemberThis is going to be a long term, yet highly enjoyable, reading project Gargantua and Pantagruel is the anti novel before the novel, a proto Swift, a proto Pynchon, who combines and blurs the boundary between low and high culture It s also highly readable, as each chapter is maybe 1 3 pages long.DecemberThe behemoth has finally fallen, slain at my feet by my feat What memories have I of the battle That it was one of the greatest battles I ve ever fought Gargantua and Pantagruel is a simu [...]

  • You have to have a certain type of sense of humour to enjoy this And a taste for lists And for shaggy dog stories A sense of the ridiculous also helps.It s learned, playful and inventive A book in which you can learn that the neck of a goose is the best thing for wiping your arse the goose presumably holds a divergent opinion on this , appreciate some of the pitfalls of conducting a formal academic debate in a university using your own invented sign language and learn why if you go to war agains [...]

  • So enjoy yourselves my loves happily reading what follows for your bodily comfort and the good of your loins Listen now, you ass pizzles May ulcers give you gammy legs and remember to drink a toast back to me And I shall pledge you double quick A note, to begin, on this particular edition the Penguin Classics translation by M A Screech There are two things found here that I particularly liked first, where applicable, Screech has managed to intuitively provide the text from the original version o [...]

  • Thank you, Colin, for reminding me to add this book to my Hate Shelf Great hammer of Thor, I hate this book Seriously It is the most heinous book ever I can handle the Renaissance humor, although, as my dad put it we both got stuck reading this book in college classes and our mutual hate of Rabelais binds us together There s only so much you can do with codpiece jokes Well said, Father Well said.

  • A number of GR readers have confessed starting this and not finishing It has five books with several chapters each The chapters are short, but they are many 1st book 58 chapters 2nd book 34 chapters 3rd book 52 chapters 4th book 67 chapters and the 5th book has 48 chapters.The secret of my picking up this title among the hundred or so in my tbr AND finishing it is that I read this like a hungry donkey More precisely, I read it like I was a donkey with a carrot in front of me hanging from a stick [...]

  • I know that this was considered an important transition between renaissance literature and the beginnings of what we call the novel, but I found this next to impossible to get into Rabelais might not have invented toilet humor, but he stretches it out about as far as it can possibly go which ultimately, isn t that far The constant references to glands and bodily fluids get old real fast I suppose that in the 16th century, the fact that people poop, pee, spit, vomit, sneeze, fornicate and fart wa [...]

  • This is a review of three interrelated books Moby Dick, Gargantua and Patragruel, and Baktin s study, Rabelais and His World Same review posted in all three places In others, the nose grew so much that it looked like the spout of a retort, striped all over and starred with little pustules, pullulating, purpled, pimpled, enameled, studded, and embroidered gules, as you have seen in the cases of Canon Bellybag and of Clubfoot, the Angers physician Others grew in the length of their bodies, from wh [...]

  • I read this years ago in the Everyman s Library edition, which reprints an old translation by Sir Thomas Urquhart Urquhart has been criticized for taking liberties with his translation i.e not translating the text accurately To that I say so what I m never going to read this book in French And Urquhart was himself a brilliant writer, and his translation is a marvel So over the top funny and strange, such verbose genuis, I had a hard time putting it down.

  • I know that this crossed into the territory of heated historical debate but technically this is the FIRST NOVEL ever written or rather the first book that was written in that style.Aside from that, this is just a beautiful, imaginative, slightly creepy book One of my favorite books in the world

  • Imagine that the world insisted that Dante s Comedy, the Vita Nuova, the writings on Monarchy, his book about using Italian instead of Latin, and some random thing written by someone claiming to be Dante were all one book, and insisted on printing them together in one 2000 page behemoth That is what happens here Gargantua and Pantagruel are rollicking The third book no doubt repays close study by people really into the Renaissance and who get off on making fun of the Papacy The fourth book is so [...]

  • I suppose if I list this as one of my influences, that s going to earn me some pointed looks It s like admitting you like Frank Zappa you re constantly defending yourself But but the scatological humour conceals a subtle brilliance You have to look behind it Huh huh huh, I said behind See There s nothing you can do You just have to stand up straight and own the ugly, knowing full well that there s an intelligence and humanity there that will inevitably be eclipsed in most readers minds by all th [...]

  • Skip this translation, Burton Raffel s, and find a copy of the recent 2006 translation by M.A Screech from Penguin.My better review is there book show 18

  • It s a book one wants in early hardcover, another latest translation in paperback for being on the move, then having read Bakhtin for good measure pick up a well handled copy for a friend in the future who is without.

  • I can t do it I think this is the only book in my journey of self education that I am going to just abandon I gave it the old college try and read over 100 pages without enjoying any of them With that much time and effort already invested I d normally just gut it out and hope for the best, but in this case, having read 100 pages only put me 1 10th toward the way to completion And in the case of this book and author that would mean about 20,000 jokes about passing gas and hundreds references to [...]
