"Alas, Alack!" Revisited

Authors

Abstract

In "Gargantua and Pantagruel," Book 4, Chapter XVIII through XXI, Pantagruel and his men are facing a dreadful storm at sea. One of the sailors, Panurge, is convinced of impeding death and spends all four chapter blubbering. While he lets loose with a few "boo-hoo-hoo"s and a few well-placed "woe is me! woe, woe!"s and the like, most of interjections are highly original, packed with logological curiosities.
