Rableias. A Jeu D'Esprit
Medical Practitioners, Medical Treatment, Controversy
Depicts François Rabelais finding during an illness that a large number of medical practitioners are noisily disputing the appropriate treatment around his bed. He requests them to be quiet, and concludes: 'if, perforce, I must resign my breath, / For heav'n's sake let me die a natural death'.
