Animals are both a theme and an important narrative tool in the Rabelaisian corpus. Their representations and functions are as multifaceted as the texts themselves. Rabelaisian animals can be quotidian, exotic, monstrous, fantastic, biblical, fabled, literary, or scientific, vacillating between realism, improbability, and pure fantasy. This constant variety and permeability is not only at the heart of Rabelais’s conception of nature, but is also a reflection of the diversity and contradictions of the discourses on animals in the sixteenth century.
Studying Rabelais requires the “careful reading and frequent meditation” which he counsels in the prologue to Gargantua. The principle of the Forest of Meanings is important. No single meaning is to be derived from a biblical (and by analogy Rabelaisian) text. Ra- Almanacs belais says as much in the prologue to Gargantua. Two powerful constraints on the interpretive liberty suggested by this textual polyvalence, however, are, first, the sensus germanus, or the meaning that fits the context, requiring each part to be interpreted as a function of the whole; and second, Rabelais’s own contention that his “mysteries” are “living waters” to be read within the context of his faith.
Furthermore, Rabelais succeeds in provoking a sense of strangeness and disquiet in the reader, which prefigure Freud’s work on the “Unheimliche” (uncanny). Carla Freccero has explained how the Haughty Lady of Paris’s resistance to Panurge constitutes an “alien voice” in the text. Similar observations can be made about other female characters concerning the way in which they resist description or are excluded from the narrative. Freccero has also used “otherness” to elucidate the particular problems experienced when reading Rabelais’s text as a woman, when one might be unable or unwilling to acquiesce with the dominant ideological and narrative dynamics.
