dc.description.abstractHere are fables a la Fontaine and built from La Fontaine. The standard is two facing pages per fable, each fable with at least one colored illustration. I have tried the first few. Most accessible to me is Le Sanglier, l'Homme et la Montre (10): a boar finds a gold watch and rejects it because he cannot eat it. A poor man finds the same gold watch and sees it as his meal ticket for a long time to come. Each regards in his own way what each finds on the earth. A rooster proclaims the visible virtues of a bottle of wine that he is looking at. I love this gold dust that renders its material so beautiful! His discourse is in vain, as he learns by becoming a coq au vin (17). Further fables have titles like Picasseau et Picasso (42) and Le Cigare et la Fourmi (60). Good fun! The colored illustrations have their own rather eccentric style, not to my liking.en_US
