A Hundred Fables of La Fontaine

Book cover
Hundred masterpieces of French literature by Jean de La Fontaine, the most famous French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. The fables cover a vast range of human experience; the author uses all manner of archaic words, colloquialisms, outmoded constructions, presenting a sophisticated satire of conventional wisdom and morality through, one would think at first, this children’s literature genre. The fables are both instructive (but not moralizing), and frankly, elegantly mischievous. Some of them one could know from childhood, the others being an utter surprise. Subtlety, aphoristic character and genuine, true French wit – these are timeless fables of Jean de La Fontaine.
