dc.description.abstractSix fables in a pamphlet that constitutes a major find. There is something weird going on in this book. I have never seen before these fables of Babylon, of Greece, of India, and of Egypt. In the first a disfigured Aesop speaks the language of Babylon before its irascible king. A story about a plucked crow proves that he is happier and more fortunate than his feathered fellows. H.G. Miller's engraving of the plucked crow on 7 is fun. The Eagle seeks a Mate dramatizes its moral well: You cannot change human nature with a few singing lessons (11). The edge of some strong ideology becomes apparent in The Beggar and the Horse. Its moral is Give a beggar a horse and he will ride it to death (13). Not exactly a moral to stir social reform! The Prince and the Tiger Jungles is a good strong story about the price of greed: A long time and much thought and labor are required to turn a tiger jungle into a prosperous estate but very little work and only a short time is required to turn a prosperous estate back into a tiger jungle. The Fox and the Oxen dramatizes, not surprisingly, the basic law of capitalism: individual reward for personal effort is the magic ingredient always omitted in socialistic experiments.en_US
