About this product
- DescriptionThough first written over 300 years ago, this is the first complete English translation of Jean de La Fontaine's comedic classic Contes et uvelles en vers . Both sexually charged and wickedly funny, La Fontaine's Tales will surprise readers who kw him only from his work on fables for children. Though the writing is more suggestive than vulgar, it still has the power to shock readers unprepared for the darkness that inhabits these poems. Included in this title are numerous illustrations, some of which have never before been published, as well as extensive commentary by the editor.
