One thought on “Gargantua

  1. Fionnuala

    They lived and laughed and loved and leftJames JoyceWhen I glance through the reviews on my page, the words tears and moving sometimes jump out at me and my first impulse is to look away quickly But the next impulse is to look again to see what it is that has caused the reviewer to be quite so moved that they have actually shed tears Sometimes the reviewer explains what has moved them in a way that allows me to gain an insight into the powerful writing that has produced such an intense reaction [...]

    This was one crazy story It s very reminiscent of Voltaire s Candide but with a great many lewd jokes and a lot of dirty humour.It s bawdy, yes, but it also offers some philosophical insights into society It s hard to believe that this book was written over 5 centuries ago.

    I enjoyed this than Pantagruel, which was written earlier but set later Gargantua is better plotted Amongst the extravagant, obscene, bawdy nonsense, it includes an almost serious account of the title character s education, which consists not of rote drills, but of puzzles and games to learn math, readings and discussions for the humanities, visits to craftsmen to learn practical arts, all at a pace to suit the taste of the scholar One wonders if Rabelais seriously thought such an education wou [...]

    A maior dificuldade que tenho ao escrever algo sobre um livro como Garg ntua evitar os clich s acerca de cl ssicos e, num esfor o quase asc tico, remover cirurgicamente da experi ncia de leitura a base confusa de expectativas e ju zos cr ticos sobre a obra que se guardam na mem ria consciente e na mais profunda Um exerc cio de cr tica fenomenol gica, ao cabo de contas Pouco sei de Rabelais, exceto que foi um escritor franc s, m dico e um padre do s culo XVI que, embora de in cios beneditinos, ab [...]

    Gargantua was printed and edited first in 1534 1535, printing had just been invented, Pantagruel, son of Gargantua, was published first in 1532 By Fran ois Rabelais, 1495 1553 America had just been discovered, To make any sense of the works of Rabelais, we must take into account the historical environment of his time Religious inquisitions could and still did lead to accusation of heresy, the convicted would be burned alive in public.Braving these dangers, Rabelais whirled up a literary dust sto [...]

    I had much, much higher expectations I was expecting something similar to Voltaire s Zadig which I adored Something with a much greater idea.Honestly This is only making fun of certain aspects of 16th century French society I found no philosophy hidden in this book that might have made it worthwhile It is supposed to be fun Parody and stuff But really, I just found it incredibly dull I took TWO weeks to read the 70 pages that constitute this book My point is, this was boring Not in an it was a b [...]

    Je n ai aucune difficult voir le g nie de Rabelais, mais ce roman a t si d plaisant lire que je ne peux lui accorder plus de 2,5 toiles C est un jugement tout fait personnel et il concerne surtout la fa on dont je me sentais quand je lisais ce roman, alors n h sitez pas le lire pour votre connaissance personnelle

  18. Sara Ab

    L un des romans les plus lourd lire, surtout avec un humour obsc ne, une exag ration inou e et une langue fran aise tr s ancienne ne rien comprendre.

    Rid cula, absurda, sat rica y muy exagerada obra de Rabelais, aunque con esa cara de loco no esperaba otra cosa.Ah, y es tremendamente escatol gica, para referencia, el inicio del cap tulo XIII He descubierto, dijo Gargantua, luego de largas y minuciosas investigaciones, un modo de limpiarme el culo, el m s noble, el mejor y el m s eficaz que nadie haya visto Primero hagamos historia Una vez yo me limpi con una bufanda de terciopelo, de una dama, y lo que encontr es que su dulzura me procur una [...]

    Well, this was quite odd This is a famous French renaissance novel, and I didn t know what to expect Turns out that this is a crossover between an insolent satire, knight novel, fairytale, and didactic writing And first thing that you realise about it is that it is one of the most saucy novels with such an over the top squeamish humour concerning every known bodily fluid, that it would be considered trash if published today, under a modern name.But I had no problem with it s bodily fluid obssess [...]

    Hist ria absolutamente escandalosa na linguagem e cenas escatol gicas, blasfemas, alcoolizadas e sexualizadas, que nos apresenta a vida do gigante Pantagruel na Fran a do s c XVI, numa cr tica feroz de todos os estratos sociais, mas sobretudo de cl rigos, nobres, estudantes e professores das universidades Pantagruel filho de Gargantua e Rabelais parodia um sem n mero de obras e factos do seu tempo, confessando alguma predile o por humanistas em rela o aos que a estes se opunham Conta a inf ncia [...]

    There s little point rating a classic as long established as this one, but I will say that I found it easier to read its medieval French this time round than I did the last time I essayed it, 40 years ago That is to say, it wasn t completely impenetrable, though it was tough enough, and I had to be content with a general impression rather than exploring every nuance of the language Given that every alternate page in this edition was footnotes, and some of those went on for longer than the text i [...]

  23. Matt

    This is a strange and random comic novel, similar to The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, which it inspired Although Rabelais wrote this after Pantagruel, it is a prequel, describing the origins of Pantagruel s father Gargantua.My French is not good enough to discuss Andrew Brown s translation, but it seemed to me excellent written in language as fresh and modern as Rabelais would have been to his original audience Gargantua s life is a boisterous, and salacious tale that wanders all over t [...]

  24. Evan

    A less satisfying experience than Pantagruel for a modern reader Gargantua depends far than its predecessor on arcane jokes about contemporaneous clerical life The characters, including Gargantua himself, are considerably less vivid, less outrageous, less audacious The scenarios less delightfully absurd Rabelais occupies himself here with many a tedious detour and belabors his scenes The famous culmination, in which the victorious Gargantua establishes for the worthy Monk the monastery of Thele [...]

  25. Russell

    I only read the second book, out of five It s an odd tale, rooted in an overly satirical style, mixed with tall tales, fairly descriptive violence and quite a bit scatological humor It doesn t have much of a structure, Rabelais seems to be only having some sort of plot to make his character show up in the right places in order for him to satirize something He dances around with the language, with the characters, with the setting and even the size of Gargantua A lot of the play on words made a de [...]

    De la naissance de Gargantua, fils de Grandousier et de Gargamelle, suivi de l enfance et l ducation du g ant, Garguantua se clot sur la fondation de l abbaye de Th l me ayant on devise fais ce que tu voudras pop e merveilleuse, ce roman est un retour la sagesse de l Antiquit Garguantua est galement une tr s vive critique l encontre de l glise et des moines L criture en vieux fran ais, qui rebute au premier abord, cache une richesse et grande palette stylistique aux accents rotiques.

  28. Thomas Strömquist

    One of the books my teacher had us read in the hope of waking interest in literature A bit of look how quirky and entertaining classics can be It did not work all the way I think, even if I think the dirty humor and rowdy characters and proceedings did make a few classmates actually finish an assigned one My own later perspective is that the story falls over into the silly kind of slap stick for me But you always take something away from reading a classic.
