The Craft of La Fontaine Summary


The Craft of La Fontaine by Maya Slater

This study provides a detailed account of the "Fables", including humour, the representation of animals, the literary qualities and the "moraliste" core. Dr Slater brings to light veiled satirical attacks, allusion to forgotten works and literature, and traces the obscure currents of thought, all this in the service of explicating the "fable" element.
