dc.description.abstractHere is a second copy of this helpful book. This book represents a great contribution to this collection. First, it brings together all of Bierce's fables. Secondly, it adds several hundred fables to what is available of Bierce's work. Its first main section comprises The Fables of Zambri, the Parsee. I was not even aware of these 135 fables. After that, we find the several sections of Fantastic Fables. Then there are Uncollected Fables, which run here from Item #448 to Item #846. A commentary and a chronology round out the volume. This book will help me and others for years to come, besides delighting us whenever we have a chance to read some of Bierce's work. For this round, I read the Zambri fables. Though I gather that they are early work and considered rudimentary, I still enjoy them. A number of them are already good parodies of traditional Aesop: items 33, 35, 71, and 82. Otherwise my prizes go to items 15, 19, 44, 54, 60, 70, 73, 74, 75, and 111. I especially praise 21, 61, and 95. The introduction is helpful, though I might have hoped for even more than its fifteen pages.en_US
