MetadataShow full item record
Half of this number goes to fables. T of C on 3-4 gives an overview of this eclectic gathering. The best fable section surveys FC (19-34). The Packets by Bates and Whittemore tend to move outside the fable genre. Perennial Adventures notes that both Phaedrus and LaFontaine wrote under absolute monarchs. Late nineteenth and early twentieth century fabulists returned to the age-old cynical morality of Phaedrus with some parody. Recent works represented here tend to absurdism and existentialism. The visual art is as eclectic as the texts.
