(Doubleday Page & company,, 1925)
A delightful introduction engagingly brings the reader to the points in Morley's life at which he met each of these two fairy tales. Morley seems to use that expression interchangeably with fables. De Musset's ...
The Fable of the Bees, Vol. 2
(Liberty Classics, 1924)
I freely admit that I have not come close to reading this tome. This work gives a great example of what I do not mean by fable !
The Fable of the Bees, Vol. 1
(Liberty Classics, 1924)
I freely admit that I have not come close to reading this tome. The heart of this first volume was published by Mandeville in 1732. The problem of the text is discussed on ix-xii and xxxiii-xxxvii. The volume gives a ...
The Lion and the Mouse
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1906)
I made it through two chapters of this slice of Americana, but have still found nothing indicating the relevance of the Aesopic (?) title. The book reads like a romanticized version of trying to make it on and against ...
Gesta Romanorum, Vol. I
(J.W. Bouton, 1872)
See my 1959 reprint of the 1876 edition for extensive comments. Comparison of the two editions might be instructive. This first volume contains eighty stories. T of C. Long set of notes on 281-388. Strongly Aesopic: ...

(British Library, 1990)
This is a pretty book offering Payne's sense of typical patterns of presentation in bestiaries, with good supporting photographs and illustrations. Aesop is touched on in a number of ways. In the section on Antelope ...
feldman fieldmouse: a fable
(Harper & Row, 1971)
A fine ninety-six-page novellette about young Lonny's friendship with Fendall and his spirited uncle Feldman. Feldman becomes enraptured with experiencing a moon dance that involves wonderful leaps into the air. He heard ...
A Fable for Critics
(The Riverside Press: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1848)
This strange booklet begins with a rubricated title page offering a wonderfully crazy perspective on the work. Multiple prefaces indicate that the work was first published anonymously. It seems to have outgrown its first ...
The Right Play for You
(Abingdon Press, 1960)
A simple pedagogical work for those who work with young people. How do you select, adapt, and alter a play? Aesop gives two of the first subjects dealt with: FG (23-24) as a subject involving good pantomime possibilities ...
