    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 clochidonnaminer which is used in a scene where Gargantua borrows the bells of Notre Dame Cathedral to hang on his horse’s bridle. One of the professors from the Sorbonne comes to plead for the return of the bells addressing Gargantua as Domine (master) and saying Clochidonnaminez-nous which means more or less ‘give-us-back-the-bells-which-you-dominated-us-by-taking-from-us.’ I love it. I wish I could use clochidonnaminer in some everyday situation but where could anyone ever use such a word!

    At other times, the unfamiliar words Rabelais uses exist already but in another language, eg, despumer which he has borrowed from Latin (despumo, despumare) and turned into French. It means to skim off or clarify (associated with wine-making perhaps) but Rabelais uses it to satirise those who use Latin words to bemuse and confuse their listeners: nous despumons la verbocination latiale (we clarify latinate verbocinations) but of course they do the very opposite and only make everything more unclear.
    Confused? Wait, I’m not finished with this subject of curious words yet.

    Another interesting word I came across is emberlificoter which trips along the tongue really nicely. Try it yourself: em-ber-liff-ey-coat-ay. It’s a word I will definitely find a use for - in fact I think I’ve just found a use for it. Those of you who’ve seen some of the Rabelais updates I posted may remember that I hesitated over which of Rabelais' books to read first, Gargantua or Pantagruel, Pantagruel or Gargantua, because although in the chronology of the story, Gargantua comes first since Gargantua engendered his son Pantagruel, in the chronology of Rabelais’ life, Pantagruel comes first since it was written a couple of years before Gargantua and therefore engendered Gargantua, so to speak.
    The solution I came up with was to read them both at once, a sip of one then a sip of the other, as it were. It was a good plan and allowed me to see the parallels between the narratives more clearly.

    Rabelais begins each book with a detailed description of the main character’s birth and we learn that Gargantua, for example, was born out of his mother’s ear because the midwife had given her such a strong anti-purgative that it closed off all other exits.
    Pantagruel’s birth was equally gruelling as he was an exceptionally large baby. The placenta came first and contained sixty-eight mule drivers, each with a cart-load of salt (view spoiler)[the salt was to make everyone thirsty so that they would want to drink all the time, Pantagruel included (hide spoiler)]

    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), but it is funny and bigger than life. I have not read its companion volume, Gargantua, as I was told it was more of the same but perhaps I'll get around to it one day.

    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).
    What great (gullet) you have baptized Grandgousier at the birth of his son Gargantua.

    The first part of the collection tells us about childhood, adolescence and maturity of the giant hero.
    His education sponsored by the humanist Ponocrates, his departure for Paris (the episode of Notre Dame is edifying), his many learnings where we see here the pedagogy advocated by Rabelais: in addition to studies, lessons of things , lessons of life in opposition with the rigorous teaching, ex cathedra of Sorbonnards.

    Gargantua returns to the country when the picrocholine war breaks out, one perceives in the father as in the son a reflection different from the obscurantism of the attackers.
    Also appears the famous Brother Jean of Entommeures, monk of action in a century blinded by a dominant and domineering religion.

    The Middle Ages ends, the sixteenth century is announced: references to medicine (Rabelais was a doctor), geographical discoveries, good food (famine ...): the outline of the humanist spirit.

    It is particularly seen in the second part devoted to Pantagruel, son of the previous one.

    Wars, travels, meetings and quest are the path of the heir of Grandgousier and Gargantua.
    We meet Panurge whose name is always quoted...

    Throughout this book-wager, we find excerpts from the original text (in modernized French) and the popular rabelaisian truculence that can still disturb the cold minds.

    The drawings of the Italian master of the ninth art, Dino Battaglia, with the coloring of Laure, his companion, are a delight.

    Perfectly adapted to the story, they break the habits of the comics, go beyond the traditional frameworks and we restore the gigantism of the heroes, the wars, the movements and the noises.
    Laughs and reflections are at the rendezvous and in the text and in the illustration.

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

  5. says:

    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 version. Unfortunately, I couldn't fine one, and I'm not really sure I can say I've actually read this book now. Some scenes are easy enough to get, but quite a lot of the material is a bit obscure when you lack the cultural context... (And like, don't really get what the funny part is supposed to be for a macabre, medieval audience.) So I'll read a book about Rabelais and his writings instead, and re-read this one day with the help of some experts.

    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 need to know about your shit (literally), or how you annoy women who don't want to sleep with you, or how you literally live to make the others miserable.
    I don't get it.
    And I don't get why the author would think this is funny. It's not. It's gross.

    The only chapters I did enjoy were 8 and 32, and I admit 30 was interesting and kinda funny.

  7. says:

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

  8. says:

    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 guess it's a drinking tale. I have to admit I did chuckle a few times because it's so over the top. It reminds me of a cross between Monty Python, Paul Bunyan, and weird fantasy. Crazy. I had a dictionary on hand and learned a few new words, but many of the words are either manufactured or in a different language. I suppose it has value because of the interesting words. I'm glad we got through it and can move onto mellower works.

  9. says:

    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.

  10. says:

    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 the race of pygmies, while in another he drowns an entire legion of troops with his urine.

    Unfortunately, the prose was a bit awkward for my taste. The problem with word-based humor is that it tends not to translate very well to other languages. Actually, to call Rabelais' humor word-based would be a dramatic understatement, as his inventive prose is credited with introducing hundreds of words to the French language, many borrowed or adapted from Latin, Greek, and Italian. Sir Thomas Urquhart's English translation had an undeniable charm of its own, but I highly doubt that it can compare to the original French text.

    Gargantua and Pantagruel is a curiosity for English speakers and should probably be approached as such. Its true beauty is otherwise encoded.
