Omschrijving
M. de la Fontaine - Contes et Nouvelles en Vers - 1778
Literatuur, Naslagwerken - Aantal: 1 - Boek

A lovely set by Jean de La Fontaine, a French poet of great renown, mainly known for his fables and to a lesser extent for his tales. He also wrote various poems, plays and opera librettos which confirm his moralist ambitions.

In fact, it was by drawing inspiration from the fabulists of Greco-Latin antiquity, and in particular Aesop, that he wrote the Fables for which he is famous.
The first collection, which corresponds to books I to VI of the current editions, was published in 1668, the second (books VII to XI) in 1678, and the last (current book XII) is dated 1694.

The brilliant use of verse and the moral purpose of the texts, which are much more complex than they appear on first reading, have determined the success of this unique work, and La Fontaine's Fables are still considered to be one of the greatest masterpieces of French literature.
