Pantagruel : Les horribles et épouvantables faits et prouesses du très renommé Pantagruel Roi des Dipsodes, fils du grand géant Gargantua composés nouvellement par maître Alcofribas Nasier В сатиричния си роман „Гаргантюа и Пантагрюел“ Рабле противопоставя хуманистичните възгледи срещу тази на схоластиката, а именно механичното усвояване на знания, запълването на деня с безмислени занимания и игри, формално учение за религията и др В огромен фокус Рабле събира и изразява всички противоречия, конфликти и проблеми на своята съвременност В изострената социалноисторическа и политическа обстановка, като работи тактично и разумно, той успява да избегне съдбата на редица хуманисти, които загиват от преследванията на тъмните сили, и да доизкара до край своето епохално произведениеКоренно различно е учението на учителя хуманист Знанията се придобиват посредством книги, изпълнени с вековни мъдростиизучават се астрономия, математика, медицина, естествознание и др Като методи на обучение се използват наблюдението и беседата с цел ученикът да бъде активен през цялото време Освен това се прилага и методът на занимателното обучение, като например геометрията, която се използва в игрите и по този начин се придобиват умения за практическото приложение Не е пренебрегнато и физическото възпитание на човека За неговото развитие се използва храненето, създаването на хигиенни навици, спорт и др Франсоа Рабле обръща сериозно внимание и на труда като метод за физическо развитие

    Rabelais Reviews Part II

    One of the things I'm really enjoying while reading about Gargantua and Pantagruel is the amount of new and interesting words I've come across. Sometimes the words are invented to suit the context as in the verb clochidonn

    Although the language of Rabelais is quite difficult in the original 16th C French, with its strange diction and spelling, this is a fantastic book full of humour and political satire. Rabelais narrowly escaped from the Inquisition with this book that was considered obscene at the time (and perhaps even now his anal and scatological obsessions would make some blush)

    In 1980, the comic strip of Dino Battaglia appeared in Italy after the work of Rabelais.
    The author is accustomed adaptations of literary works.

    2001 will see the publication in French of the drawings accompanied by the arranged text (see for this purpose the explanatory forewords of the genesis of the work and the posthumous adaptation).

    Wacky, fragmentary/episodic mish-mash of fantasy/humour/nonsense involving violence/sex/farting etc - amazing, but incoherent/uneven.

    This is very hard to rate, because Pantagruel is one of those classics that can't really hold its own today - if you're not very much into medieval French literature and history, and have an archaic French vocabulary to match your modern one. A modern French vocabulary isn't really sufficient here, and to actually get something out of Pantagruel, I think most people need a commented

    Yes, I'm a prude and I do not like sex related books. But I can stand them if there's something beyond that. This book makes disagreeable jokes (misogynist, vulgar, incoherent, excrement related) and I don't get why is that necessary. I mean, it's okay to break taboos, you do can tell me about your excrement once, maybe twice, but not the fucking entire book. I really don't

    Read in French. Very exuberant, not quite readable I'm afraid. I liked Gargantua more.

    I did not read this edition, so I'm not giving this a rating. I read the Great Works series version as well as listened to part of the audio recording.

    This one is about the giant Gargantua's giant son Pantagruel. It's just as full of hyperbole and ridiculousness as the tale about Gargantua. It's often outrageous, sometimes disgusting, and frequently crude. It's supposed to be funny. I gue

    Well, I read it in old French so that didn’t help, and I definitely lacked a lot of references. I’ll take a good old fart joke any day but the ones in here barely made me smile.

    I don't think I've ever read anything quite as... unique as Francois Rabelais' Pantagruel. If it had been produced for television, I might describe it as a combination between Ren and Stimpy and Monty Python's Flying Circus. In the story, Pantagruel is a giant of mythic proportions and he takes part in a series of adventures both lewd and surreal. In one chapter, he is described as giving off a fart that spawns t
