dc.description.abstractThis is a serious edition of Krylov's fables. It is complete and careful to follow Krylov's order of fables. About every six pages there is a good black-and-white illustration. The only colored illustration (12) repeats the cover's portrait of Krylov. The text margins are generous and the illustrations large. Fables and illustrations that caught my attention on this viewing of the book include The Trigamist (I 20); The Bag (III 7); Author and Robber (VI 24); and The Crow (VII 26). I do not yet understand the fit between fable and image in Leaves and Roots (IV 2). It strikes me that Krylov's illustrators present his fables as quite stark. For all their seriousness, Aesop and La Fontaine seem to draw more fun out of artists. The key fables in Krylov, both borrowed and new, tend to have illustrations here, as is only right. Each fable has a comment in a section near the book's end. That section is followed by an acknowledgement of the eight artists -- Brjullov, Kandaurov, Panov, Petrov, Popov, Sapozjnikov, Serov, and Trutovskij -- and four institutions whose art is presented here. The last two elements of the book are a T of C and an AI of fables. This is one of the heavier books that made my Scandinavian burden a challenge flying home from Europe!en_US
