More > son (Pantagruel) and their adventures, written in an amusing, extravagant, satirical vein. The text features much crudity, scatological humor, and violence. Lists of explicit or vulgar insults fill several chapters. The censors of the Sorbonne stigmatized it as obscene, and in a social climate of increasing religious oppression, it was dealt with suspicion, and contemporaries avoided mentioning it.According to Rabelais, the philosophy of his giant Pantagruel, "Pantagruelism", is rooted in "a certain gaiety of mind pickled in the scorn of fortuitous things"< Less

Can Gargantua and his squad of friends and courtiers save the kingdom or will Picrochole succeed in stealing the throne?

In ogni caso, incredibile che otto anni dopo il ritratto dell’Italia sia COSI’ preciso. Come dire che tutto era già scritto, era nella situazione degli anni 2005-2006, già inscritto nelle forze e nella situazione di quell’epoca lì precedente… Il suo studio, di Allocco, vale a dire la sua – sempre di Allocco - attività, era quindi andata male, questa l’idea di base del romanzetto. La televisione vi rimane comunque centrale, ma è, comunque, presa in giro, ovviamente, come sono presi in giro alcuni rappresentanti politici, dei quali si accenna, comunque, con dei nomi ovviamente inventati.< Less
