    Good fellow pantagruelists, join us in our feast Trinck Read Pass another pint of tripe All you pouty agalasts, I fart upon you To the devil with you, you black beetles, you dull and dappled drips Here we make it merry Pantagruelists of goodreads, unite You have nothing to lose but the contents of your bowels Trinck Laugh Burst Properly to give Rabelais his due, to pursue you and persuade you that as our Good Book says , Pantagrueling is the beginning of wisdom, would require the subtlety of a soft shoe but all I have is a flagon of our best vendange Can you do justice to one such as Shakespeare Is there any word one can say about that great bard Which hyperbole do you prefer, you donkey, you aardvark, you zebra So with our French Shakespeare, that laughing monk, that Doctor of our melancholy, his gentle and jovial giants Gargantua and Pantagruel, hyperbole says always just never quite what I mean to say is that your logorrhea will never be adequate to the task Would that in our schools the erudition of such a man were taught, that pantagruelian laughter were the curriculum, satire of those stodgy dip shits yes, those dip shits ran rampant, the motto of the Abbey of Th l me, Do what thou wilt, w...

    You know what philosophy needs Fran ois thought to himself More fart jokes And excrement jokes Also some obscenity, blasphemy, over eating, and sex Ooh, and giants But most of all, fart jokes.Personally, the philosophical discourses were the part I found most interesting, but if you think several hundred pages of various characters calling one another prattling gabblers, lickorous gluttons, freckled bittors, mangy rascals, shite a bed scoundrels, drunken roysters, sly knaves, drowsy loiterers, slapsauce fellows, slabberdegullion druggels, lubberly louts, cozening foxes, ruffian rogues, paltry customers, sycophant varlets, drawlatch hoydens, flouting milksops, jeering companions, staring clowns, forlorn snakes, ninny loblocks, scurvy sneaksbies, fondling fops, base loons, saucy coxcombs, idle lusks, scoffing braggarts, noddy mea...

    An Exuberant MasterpieceThis novel is almost 600 years old, yet it s hugely entertaining, far so than I had expected.In both content and style, there were times when I couldn t have guessed when it was written.It s no longer argued that it was the first ever novel However, its narrative diversity highlights that the institution of the novel has always been about stylistic innovation and that there is little that differentiates the origins of the novel from subsequent Modernism and Post Modernism.I read the early translation begun by Sir Thomas Urquhart, both in ebook form and in a lovely old hardback version that I had bought in 1983, because I loved the stylish pen and ink drawings by the Australian artist Francis J Broadhurst who also illustrated The Decameron Some of his illustrations accompany this review.There have been several translations since Urquhart s However, I couldn t fault his version It read easily Any lengthy sentences were playful than turgid Steven Moore describes it as an exuberant masterpiecebut they...

    Rabelais The foreman of farts The sheik of shit The rajah of rectums The first joke in the world was a fart joke Sophocles, Shakespeare, Melville, all liked fart jokes But no one has ever farted like Rabelais.Here s the dirty truth if you re not super into 1100 pages of 16th century fart jokes, you can read the first two books and skip the rest I KNOW Only assholes do that Look, you don t have to take my advice, I don t care, I m justdo kids still say keeping it real No No, they never actually said that Whatever I fart in your general direction, pedant You can read the first two books and love Rabelais, or read the whole thing and be annoyed Your choice.Book One in the order they were written is Pantagruel, and here s what Pantagruelism is, so you know what your pretentious college professor friends are talking about it when they start throwing that word around p.s people who use this word are like 30 seconds from hinting that they swing, so just be aware of that it s A certain merriness of mind pickled in contempt for things fortuitous It means talking about heavy things, but not too heavily There s a lot of drinking involved But not drunkenness You know how Europeans are Pantagruelists are educated and intelligent they re very pleased with themselves for being ed...

    That is why, Drinkers, I counsel you to lay up a good stock of my books while the time is right as soon as you come across them on the booksellers stalls you must not only shuck them but devour them like an opiatic cordial and incorporate them within you it is then that you will discover the good they have in store for all noble bean shuckers. Reading Rabelais over the last few months has been an enlightening and perplexing and stimulating pleasure, a delirious encyclopaedic cornucopia of codpiece cracks, heftily quoted Erasmus adages, early renaissance medical insights, highbrow fart humour, lowbrow fart humour, pyromaniacal punning, witchy and wizardy wordplay, unbothersome biblical allusions, magical and phantasmagorical adventures, saucy swiving scenes, Panurgian cowardice, inept marriage advice, proto neo cleo surrealist larks, over my head erudition, and welcome thumb agony This edition places the ...

    Rabelais is not to be skipped in literary history as he is a source of so much proverb, story joke which are derived from him into all modern books in all languages Ralph Waldo EmersonIt is perhaps one of the most reassuring aspects of reading great books of the past how often you come across an individual who lived in a different time and place, who spoke a different language and held different beliefs, whose life was shaped by none of the same technologies or institutions but who is nonetheless immediately recognizable and even intimately familiar Such is Montaigne, such is Cervantes, and such is Rabelais.It s hard to describe Rabelais without comparing him to his great successor, James Joyce Like Joyce, Rabelais was enormously learned unlike many of his contemporaries, he knew how to read Greek, and translated many of the works of Hippocrates and Galen He buttered his bread by working as a doctor During his lifetime, he corresponded with many of the brightest lights of Europe, including Erasmus This book is full of references to theology, history, law, science, and virtually any other subject that existed at the time And yet, as in Joyce, all this massive learning is marshaled to better deliver jokes about defecation, micturation, flatulation, copulation, and ...

    I miss having time to write reviews But you pick something up and something has to fall from you Human hands hold very little A skull blinks centuries have dusted awaySince RabelaisI miss having time to readUninterrupted hours and time to think about what I readBut we take on other tasks knowing we must make and remake ourselves and the ones we care about every day all day A chisel is a tool against time, but one starts feeling stupid chiseling at wind really I still have time to readAnd remember to live joyfullyAnd drink and don t despairToday I read an essay about someone I once spent a weekend with and it made me dwell seriously on our far flung fates and the old questions raised by Yorick and what it is to be absent mistaking ourselves about presenceI do the same thing because I need to live and others say they need meBut something must slip away when something else is taken upAnd remembering to live joyfullySaying farewell to holidays and empty ends isn t everything We once walked this earth unconcerned all of us not so long agoCenturies dusted away since Rabelais most of living is fighting dispersalQuite stupidlyAll thought has been thought bef...

    Tireless drinkers, it s been bestow d upon me by my bosom buddy Panurge to cajole you vagabonds to give some of your high priced time to Rabelais, Although he thinks it s easier getting farts out of a dead donkey that has the stench of a thousand devils and selling some of them at five pence per ell then persuading you rogues But to conclude I affirm and maintain that there is no bottom wiper like a downy young goose, provided that you hold its head between your legs Believe me on my honour, for you can feel in your bumhole a mirifical voluptuousness, as much from the softness of its down as from the temperate heat of the young goose which is readily communicated to the arse gut until it reaches the region of the heart and the brain That is why, Drinkers, I counsel you to lay up a good stock of his books while the time is right as soon as you come across them on the booksellers stalls...
