Abstract "Der Beitrag kommentiert die 1565 als Songes drolatiques de Pantagruel erschienenen und fälschlich Rabelais zugeschriebene grotesken Holzschnitte. Die karnevalesken Kreaturen erscheinen ob ihrer konvulsiv-monströsen Gestalt(ung) als Antidot idealisiert-normativer Ästhetik- und eingefrorener Sprachkonventionen. Diskursanalytisch fungieren Sprachbild (Symbolisches) und Bildersprache (Imaginäres) als simulakrum eines traumatischen Kerns (Reales)." (Autorenreferat)

"The article comments woodcuts which have been published in 1565 as Drolatic Dreams of Pantagruel (or Pantagruel's Comical Dreams) and which had been wrongly attributed to Rabelais. Due to their convulsive-monstrous form, the carnivalesque creatures seem to be antidotes against the conventions of as well idealized-normative aestheticism as frozen language. From the point of lacanian discourse analysis, the combination of imagery (Imaginary) and metaphor (Symbolic) serves as simulacrum of a traumatic core (Real)." (author's abstract)
