They tell the story of two giants—a father Gargantua and his son Pantagruel and their adventures—written in an amusing, extravagant, and satirical vein. Most critics today agree that Rabelais wrote from a Christian humanist perspective. It is a classical utopia presented in order to critique and assess the state of the society of Rabelais’s day, as opposed to a modern utopian text that seeks to create the scenario in practice. Rabelais believed that men who are free, well born and bred have honour, which intrinsically leads to virtuous actions. When constrained, their noble natures turn instead to remove their servitude, because men desire what they are denied.
