The last volume's attribution to Rabelais is debatable. The Fifth Book was not published until nine years after his death and includes much material that is clearly borrowed such as from Lucian 's True History and Francesco Colonna 's Hypnerotomachia Poliphili  or of lesser quality than the previous books. In the notes to his translation of Gargantua and Pantagruel , Donald M. Frame proposes that the Fifth Book may have been formed from unfinished material that a publisher later patched together.
This interpretation has been largely supported by Mireille Huchon in "Rabelais Grammairien",  the first book to provide a rigorous grammatical analysis of the matter.
Cohen, in his Introduction to the Penguin Classics edition, indicates that chapters 17—48 were so out-of-characters as to be seemingly written by another person, with the Fifth Book "clumsily patched together by an unskilful editor.
Throughout Rabelais and His World , Bakhtin attempts two things.
First, to recover sections of Gargantua and Pantagruel that in the past were either ignored or suppressed. Secondly, to conduct an analysis of the Renaissance social system in order to discover the balance between language that was permitted and language which was not.
Through this analysis, Bakhtin pinpoints two important subtexts in Rabelais' work: Thus, in Rabelais and His World , Bakhtin studies the interaction between the social and the literary, as well as the meaning of the body. Bakhtin explains that carnival in Rabelais' work and age is associated with the collectivity, for those attending a carnival do not merely constitute a crowd. Rather the people are seen as a whole, organized in a way that defies socioeconomic and political organization.
Here, in the town square, a special form of free and familiar contact reigned among people who were usually divided by the barriers of caste, property, profession, and age". At carnival time, the unique sense of time and space causes the individual to feel he is a part of the collectivity, at which point he ceases to be himself.
It is at this point that, through costume and mask, an individual exchanges bodies and is renewed. At the same time there arises a heightened awareness of one's sensual, material, bodily unity and community. Bakhtin says also that in Rabelais the notion of carnival is connected with that of the grotesque. The collectivity partaking in the carnival is aware of its unity in time as well as its historic immortality associated with its continual death and renewal.
According to Bakhtin, the body is in need of a type of clock if it is to be aware of its timelessness. The grotesque is the term used by Bakhtin to describe the emphasis of bodily changes through eating, evacuation, and sex: Thomas Urquhart first translated the work into English in the midth century, although his translation was incomplete, and Peter Anthony Motteux completed the translation of the fourth and fifth books.
Cohen in the preface to his translation as "more like a brilliant recasting and expansion than a translation", although Motteux's contribution was criticised as "no better than competent hackwork William Francis Smith — made a new translation in , trying to match Rabelais' sentence forms exactly, which renders the English obscure in places.

John Michael Cohen's modern translation, first published in by Penguin, "admirably preserves the frankness and vitality of the original", according to its back cover, although it provides limited explanation of Rabelais' word-plays and allusions.
Penguin published a translation by M. Screech in with an explanatory section preceding each chapter and brief footnotes explaining some of the allusions and puns used. An edition published in was illustrated by W.
