Gargantua and Pantagruel

Francois Rabelais

Available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook, or read online. This book has 690 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published 1532-1564. This translation by Thomas Urquhart and Peter Antony Motteux, was originally published in around 1653.


Gargantua and Pantagruel by Francois Rabelais, was first published in the mid sixteenth century. A work of satirical and fantasy fiction, it tells the story, over 5 books, of two giants; Gargantua and his son Pantagruel as they travel through various lands. On their travels, they meet people on Tool Island, who are so fat, they slit their skin to let the fat puff out; the sexually prolific Semiquavers; the Furred Law-Cats, who imprison them; and, the Chitterlings, who attack them. Containing much vulgarity and wordplay, it was viewed as obscene by some, and treated with suspicion during a social age of religious oppression.
