dc.description.abstractHere is a well-packed, small-print paperback of 114 pages with a wealth of basic material for understanding the genre fable. The book was first published in 1967, and this is a second, improved and extended, edition. As its opening T of C shows, it moves through ten chapters. A first chapter studies the word and concept fable. There follows a review of attempts to define the essential character and the genesis of this genre. A third chapter distinguishes fable from related genres. Characteristic traits of the genre make up the fourth chapter. Chapter Five presents four formal variations: dramatising, Episierung, versifying, and the linear character of prose fables. Chapter Six presents four stylistic traits of fable: belehrender, kritisierender, satirischer, and fabuloser. The structure of typical fables makes up the seventh chapter, including Alberus' unusual structure of situating each fable in a particular geographical region and even its typical scenery. Chapter Eight treats the history of fable, especially German fable, through its major periods. A ninth chapter deals with fable in the school curriculum. A final chapter gives an overview and some of the tasks of further research. Do not confuse this book with Leibfried's other book of the same title, published by Buchler in 1984. I had to check Wikipedia to make sure that a man wrote two books with the same name in different publishing houses! My question of this fine book is about its intended audience. Could this be a scholarly resource for teachers in the Gymnasium? Its bibliographical sections are very strong! A surprising thing about this book is that it contains almost no fable texts. That approach makes sense. Many such scholarly approaches include some or even many texts, selected to demonstrate or confirm the author's views.en_US
