Rabelais : the Life of Gargantua and Pantagruel

Abstract : Rabelais combined the fantastic imagination of oriental legends, of Indo-European myths, of classical Antiquity and Renaissance scholarship, using a vernacular French stuffed with linguistic borrowings and inventions. His curiosity went far beyond his native country, and he played with the art of transforming actual history and places into shareable worlds of fiction.
