Summary
"Rip-roaring and rib-tickling, Francois Rabelais's irreverent story of the giant Gargantua, his giant son Pantagruel, and their companion Panurge is a classic of the written word. A masterpiece in its own right, Frame's complete translation brings to twentieth-century English all the exuberance and invention of the original sixteenth-century French. Helpfully annotated for the nonspecialist, the book includes, along with the five books traditionally known as Gargantua and Pantagruel, the rest of Rabelais's known writings, including his letters. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
