This lively new translation of the most famous among La Fonatine's celebrated fables captures the wit and nuances of the original, showing how La Fontaine deals with universal themes in a deeply human, wise, and yet irrepressibly humorous way. The selection—including 110 of the original 240 fables—spans La Fontaine's long writing life and shows his progression from short, charming tales for children to longer, more philosophical fables. Including a parallel French text, a full introduction, and extensive notes, this edition is perfect for all lovers of poetry.
