PANTAGRUELLE

Literary Encyclopedia
the book far upstages anything previously written in France within the same genre (his attested source, the Grandes croniques, is pitiful in comparison); witness in chapter eight the most eloquent vernacular eulogy of Renaissance learning produced at that time, in Pantagruel himself the prototype of its embodiment in Rabelais?s own later works, and in Panurge one of the great comic heroes of world literature.

The four inserted paragraphs comprise an intriguing defence of his own literary manner, arguing that his intention in writing such nonsense was merely to amuse, such being the spirit in which they should also be read.

made various adjustments, particularly toning down his overt insults to the Sorbonne, but then adding a new conclusion to the initially quite perfunctory final chapter.

Victory is soon confirmed with the captive enemy King married off to a whore and reduced to a demeaning role as seller of green sauce. Then the author interrupts his account of Pantagruel?s counter-invasion with that of the narrator Alcofribas?s adventures in Pantagruel?s mouth.

The ensuing duel recounted in Pantagruel chapter twenty-nine differs from the one-sided and comical encounters described thus far, at least to the extent that the hero is at one point distressed and calls, unavailingly, for support from Panurge, the architect of his previous victories.

challenged when Pantagruel accepts the offer to undertake single combat against the enemy champion, the super-giant Loupgarou. The episode comprises another fascinating exercise in Rabelaisian textual variety whereby the enemy giants sit back and enjoy a banquet alongside Panurge and his companions, while Pantagruel prepares himself for the crucial struggle with a sincere and fully evangelical prayer, couched in the same rhetorical style as Gargantua?s letter, and promising, in the event of his success, to spread the true word of God fully through all the lands over which he might thenceforth rule.

Thus equipped and morally reinforced, they arrive and quickly defeat a preliminary assault by six hundred and sixty enemy knights; as in the Thaumaste encounter, though, it is in fact Panurge who takes charge, first ambushing the foe in a trap, and then burning them all alive, bar one who is taken prisoner by the fleet-footed Carpalim.

Gargantua has been transported to fairyland by Morgan le Fay, following which a nation called the Dipsodians have invaded the giants? homeland Utopie. The company leave immediately for the port of Rouen, Rabelais?s main task being now to recount the defeat of an invading and recognisably un-Christian foe in a pattern belonging to the Charlemanic tradition of chansons de geste.

Thaumaste, an English scholar who plans to meet Pantagruel in a disputation. The comical incongruity here resides in a proposal to use signs rather than words in their confrontation; hence the obvious anti-scholastic theme is again overlaid with nonsense, more particularly as Rabelais hands the key role in the performance to Panurge. Replacing his nervous master, he proceeds to extemporise a series of gestures, some of them obscene, which at once mystify, defeat and satisfy his

Several of the other Parisian chapters are then given over exclusively to Panurge who comes to dominate Paris on a comic rather than an intellectual level. He tells vulgar stories about its construction, makes mischief in the Latin Quarter at the expense of the legal and academic authorities, steals from the Church, and tries but fails to seduce an aristocratic lady, all to the amusement of his company.

The second occurrence is Pantagruel?s meeting with his own opposite, namely the anti-hero Panurge. This character, invented by Rabelais, will be Pantagruel?s beloved and lifelong companion even though belonging to a totally different tradition, namely the trickster figure of folk legend whose aim is to generate humour at the expense of deserving and undeserving victims, and in the process to invert normal standards

anti-medieval stance is certainly exaggerated, the Middle Ages being unfairly condemned as a period of non-culture when the barbarians had destroyed all true learning. What redeems the piece is its oratorical power, plus the religious message which Rabelais includes, when he argues that learning without a conscientious dimension leads to spiritual ruin.

Born during a fearsome drought, Rabelais?s gigantic Pantagruel in fact has the same effect on many whom he meets in his adventures, but when Rabelais expands him into a giant so massive that on campaign he can shelter his entire army under half his tongue, he is making a joke mostly lost on the modern reader.
