Publisher's Summary

Over 350 years before the British occultist Aleister Crowley was sitting quietly in a Cairo hotel room receiving the text of his Book of the Law, the famous French renaissance author Francois Rabelais was busy writing the second book of his legendary fantasy quintology Gargantua and Pantagruel, which included the story of the founding of the Abbey of Theleme, wherein but one clause was observed: "Do What Thou Wilt"!

Those who have an ear, let them hear.

This book is a philosophical classic. Not to be missed. Many will miss the point that deprivation breeds depravity. The book is delightfully heretical and a tonic for the soul.
