    Here is a grotesque and carnivalesque collection of exuberant, fantastical stories that takes us from the ancient world through to the European Renaissance. At the heart of these tall tales are the giant Gargantua and his equally seismic son, Pantagruel. Containing magical adventures, maniacal punning, slapstick humor, erudite allusions, and just about any bodily function one can think of, here is quite possibly the zaniest, most risqué book ever written.

    Over 350 years before the British occultist Aleister Crowley was sitting quietly in a Cairo hotel room receiving the text of his Book of the Law, the famous French renaissance author Francois Rabelais was busy writing the second book of his legendary fantasy quintology Gargantua and Pantagruel, which included the story of the founding of the Abbey of Theleme, wherein but one clause was observed: "Do What Thou Wilt"!

    De "Gargantua (La vie très horrifique du grand Gargantua, père de Pantagruel, fils de Grandgousier)", les Éditions Thélème ont surtout retenu la devise énoncée par les Thélémistes "Fay ce que voudras" ! L'utopique abbaye de Thélème, inventée par Rabelais, fut bâtie par le géant Gargantua pour son ami Frère Jean des Entommeures. Ce lieu avait pour vocation d'accueillir les jeunes gens bien nés, pour leurs études et leurs loisirs.

Nauki, jakie pobieraja bohaterowie, bitwy i pojedynki, które tocza, ich niekonczace sie uczty, wedrówki, sady, zarty, fortele, parodystyczne debaty z ówczesnymi autorytetami - wszystko to sluzy autorowi za kanwe dla swobodnej, niczym niekrepowanej satyry na caly otaczajacy go swiat.

    Gargantua and Pantagruel by Francois Rabelais. Dramatised by Lavinia Murray. Episode 1: Gargantua. The bawdy, exuburant adventures of medieval giants. A dizzying blend of fantasy, comedy, philosophy and scatological humour. The world's a messy place. The first episode depicts the young life of the giant Gargantua, who is reduced to laughable insanity by an education at the hands of paternal ignorance, old crones and syphilitic professors. Episode 2: - Pantagruel. Concluding the bawdy and scatological adventures of Medieval giants.
