Title: Langue et sens du Quart Livre
Subtitle: Actes du colloque de Rome (novembre 2011)
Edited By: Franco Giacone

Ce volume présente les actes du colloque organisé à Rome en novembre 2011 par le professeur Franco Giacone sur le Quart Livre de Rabelais. La diversité des approches (linguistiques, historiques, littéraires) montre le renouvellement de la critique sur un texte que l'on pouvait croire connu. Les articles ici réunis proposent une lecture assurément plus juste de cette œuvre, que son aspect déconstruit rend particulièrement moderne.

The variety of approaches (linguistic, historical and literary) in this volume of studies on the Quart Livre of Rabelais shows the renewal of criticism on a text which we might have thought to be well-known.
