dc.description.abstract"This booklet of some 92 pages gives first a history of the La Fontaine Museum in Château-Thierry, secondly of the house in which Jean de La Fontaine was born and raised, and thirdly of La Fontaine's place overall in the "universe of the arts." From the end of the 17th century, La Fontaine was assured of a place in French art because he was read regularly in the schools. Every Frenchman, young or old, rich or poor, knew La Fontaine's fables. "La Fontaine est un poète visuel" (21). There follow a set of chapters on La Fontaine in various specific contexts from the 17th through the 19th centuries. If he was read in the schools, it is still true that in the 17th and 18th centuries, French literature did not always highly respect what La Fontaine had done with this genre. Oudry seems to have broken this pattern with both his massive edition of the fables and with several oil paintings on wood, two of which are offered in color here, including "The Wolf As Shepherd" on the front cover. After a look at painting, later chapters look at La Fontaine and ceramics, at one important edition of La Fontaine, and at caricature. There are then notes, a list of illustrations, and several "bibliographical orientations." For many of us, the main value of this booklet will lie in the 56 black-and-white and eight full-color illustrations. Fables that receive particular attention include "The Wolf As Shepherd"; MSA; "Monkey and Cat"; "The Wolves and the Lambs"; DLS; OR; and FS."en_US
