'Human nature, when fresh from the hand of God, was full of poetry. Its sociality could not be pent within the bounds of the actual. To the lower inhabitants of air, earth, and water,--and even to those elements themselves, in all their parts and forms,--it gave speech and reason. The skies it peopled with beings, on the noblest model of which it could have any conception--to wit, its own. The intercourse of these beings, thus created and endowed,--from the deity kindled into immortality by the imagination, to the clod personified for the moment,--gratified one of its strongest propensities; for man may well enough be defined as the historical animal. The faculty which, in after ages, was to chronicle the realities developed by time, had at first no employment but to place on record the productions of the imagination. Hence, fable blossomed and ripened in the remotest antiquity.'
Thus the forthright New World prose of Elizur Wright on the ultimate origins of the fable in the pungent Preface to his translation of La Fontain's Fables, the present English text, which first appeared in 1842.
The fable was, and still is, a notably memorable and concise way of presenting the moral lessons and laws, and truths, which we would seek by to live by.
The present comprehensive selection, comprising the most notable and well known of La Fontaine's fables, is presented in the English translation of Elizur Wright's. A version long acclaimed as the most original and faithful rendition into the language.
This edition is fully illustrated throughout with the epic engravings of Gustave dore taken from the original London edition of 1867. Their style and execution match perfectly the great french poet's work and enhance further the reader's appreciation.
