Description
If the word "fable" makes you think of heavy-handed, saccharine moral tales, then the fables and stories of 17th-century poet Jean de La Fontaine will seem like a breath of fresh air. Updating fables by Aesop and other ancient writers, La Fontaine displays his barbed wit and worldliness in such classics as "The Grasshopper and the Ant," "The Peacock Complains to Juno," and "The Frog Who Wanted to Make Herself as Big as an Ox." National Book Critics Circle Award–winning poet Marie Ponsot's elegant 1966 translations for readers of all ages have impeccable rhythm and rhyme, and include the occasional footnote to clarify mythological allusions.
