I am surprised to learn that (all of?) Yriarte's fables have to do with academics. The representation here is good and witty, though I find I cannot take more than a few at a reading. Best of the early fables are The Bear, the Monkey, and the Hog (#3), The Ass and the Flute (#8), and The Wolf and the Shepherd (#25). A nice book by a grad who remembers the walls of old Harvard.
