Gargantua and Pantagruel (AKA: The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel, La vie de Gargantua et de Pantagruel) is a full-length satiric novel written by the French Renaissance novelist François Rabelais. The whole book consists of five volumes, its publishing process was full of hardships and it was banned for many times. Anyway, it swept away the artificial writing style in aristocratic literature, and brought the literary world at that time a lively, close-to-life fresh air that suits both refined and popular tastes.
