This highly affordable volume includes substantial portions of Gargantua, Father of Pantagruel (known as the First Book), and Pantagruel, King of the Dipsodes (the Second Book), as well as significant chapters from the Third and Fourth Books of Pantagruel. This translation in modern English is based on the text and commentary of Jacques Boulenger and Lucien Scheler, as well as Abel Lafranc's edition. The introduction contains a plot summary of all five books and discussions of Rabelais' literary technique, the allegorical and metaphorical qualities of the work, and principal translations. Also included are a list of principal dates in the life of Rabelais and a bibliography.
