dc.description.abstractAs the back cover proudly says, here are one fable from La Fontaine and seventy-five to discover. All seem to build in one way or another off of La Fontaine. There is wonderful wit here! The cover's sub-title is Anthologie de fables de tous les temps pour mieux vivre ensemble. The French know their La Fontaine so well that a book like this is a natural! These are poems of the sort that one needs to know highly idiomatic French to get the word plays and allusions. I understand and enjoy FC by Charles Clerc (10). The crow tells the fox that the latter has served the former despite himself. He came to lunchtime today without hunger. The flattering fox made the tortoise's simple meal seem delectable. Queneau's parody of GA follows this method: every original word was replaced by the seventh word which follows it in the dictionary (15). The fly that brought the chariot along comes in for special consideration with four different fables on 22-23. Le Chat et l'Oiseau looks to me like a fine fable, as a cat ends up lamenting that he only partially destroyed a lamented dead bird (29). If I knew that his state would cause you such pain, I would have eaten him entirely. The ox in OF asks Is it my fault that I am so large? (44). The pretty T of C at the end gives the sources of the poems. The art is highly stylized. Like the poems, it will stimulate thought.en_US
