dc.description.abstractThis is a frail little book by a woman who died in 1974. Its spine is just about gone. Its lovely canvas cover is there, with the glued-on picture of a woman -- d'Orliac? -- with her chin in her hand. The same illustration occurs on the title-page. The twenty fables take up some 46 small pages. I wish my French were up to a closer reading of these fables. I notice one comparing the man who goes up in an elevator with the one who uses the stairs (4). I enjoyed La Nouvelle Fable du Lièvre et de la Tortue (6). It seems they agree on a rematch. As far as I can tell, the hare wins easily and proclaims that one not only has to depart on time, but one also still needs to run. I wish I could manage La Raison du Plus Faible (25). Not in Shapiro. Here is another highly ephemeral item!en_US
