dc.description.abstractI had known a little bit about Wohlmuth's work from encountering it in the 1961 Vogel und Fisch: Ein Buch Fabeln. Bodemann seems to have only one work of Wohlmuth's, Vierundsiebzig Fabeln 1917 with art by Olaf Gulbransson, as here. Might this be a later and fuller rendition of that work? Bodemann's comment there mentions an aesopähnliche Dichterfigur in humoristisch-antikisierender Aufmachung mit erhobenem Zeigefinger in Kornfeld. Exactly that picture is on the cover of this book. The dust-jacket promised on the title-page is not with this copy. I enjoy these poems and sketches. These poems are more than fable-like. The first is Hilferuf (3). Frogs are aware of the approaching snakes and make a big noise. Stork hears the frogs' cries, comes down, eats the snakes and then eats the frogs too! Pfeffer (71) relates the difficulty Ebrahim has getting his ass to continue traveling. He gets the advice: Put pepper in his buttocks. He dismounts and does that. The ass then runs so fast that Ebrahim cannot catch him. So he tries the same on himself and it works! His wife wonders what is up, but Ebrahim cannot stop. He recommends that she too pepper her buttocks and she will follow them like lightning. Gulbransson's two sketches for this fable are particularly good. Vom Hamster (107) relates the death of a hamster who had saved up food that he never enjoyed. Verschwender ist, wer nicht geniesst! He is a waster who does not enjoy! The last fable, Hund und Hase (126), tells of a rabbit upon whom a chasing dog is closing. In desperation the rabbit stops fast and lets the dog fly over and past him. When the great man overshoots his goal, the little man can make use of that with pleasure. T of C at the end.en_US
