Rabelais's vigorous examination of the life of his times-from bizarre battles to great drinking bouts, from satire on religion and education to matter-of-fact descriptions of bodily functions and desires-is one of the great comic masterpieces of literature.

"Grand to see this new rendition of a work full of what life is all about and translated with an equal authenticity." -- J. P. Donleavy "Raffel has done the impossible... [He] has produced a text which is amazingly true to the meaning and the linguistic gusto of the original." -- Alain Renoir "[Raffel] has provided us with a classic work, restored to its original complexity, humor, and gusto." -- Library Journal
