June 18: Lands of Legend... And Waters...

Too many legends to tell of today, but one essential one is that of Gargantua. That was a popular oral legend already, but in the 1530's, Fran├žois Rabelais took it as the basis for the first serious writing in a vernacular language. Before Shakespeare and before Cervantes, Rabelais wrote books in a mondern language, not Latin. Shakespeare invented English, Cervantes invented Spanish, and before either, Rabelais invented French.
