Description
When 17th-century French poet Jean de la Fontaine began writing his rhymed fables, drawn largely on Aesop but adapted to the society of his time, he had no idea they would be read around the world in hundreds of translations. Editor and architect Craig Hill fell in love with la Fontaine's Fables in the mid-1950s when he was a young man, and here presents new English translations in verse. Each fable focuses on one or more animals whose conduct generally mirrors the foibles, follies, and shortcomings of the human race. Though always popular with children, the fables are also often sophisticated, biting satires of wit and dark humor.
