BeschreibungThe French humanist Rabelais (ca. 1483-1553) was the greatest French writer of the Renaissance and one of the most influential authors of all time. Though a ribald satire, his Gargantua and Pantagruel offers a broad discussion of religion, philosophy, politics, and education and reflects the issues confronting the 16th century. The first work of its kind, this encyclopedia concisely but comprehensively overviews Rabelais' life and writings. Included are hundreds of entries on his works, characters, and acquaintances, as well as on such topics as religion, humanism, death, warfare, censors and censorship, education, and numerous others. Entries are written by expert contributors and close with recommendations for further reading. The volume closes with a selected, general bibliography.
