From the Back Cover:

La Fontaine (1621-95) is best known for his comic and delightful fables. This lively new translation of the most famous among them captures the wit and nuances of the original. The selection - of 110 of the 240 Fables - spans La Fontaine's long writing life and shows his progression from short, charming children's tales to longer, more philosophical fables. The parallel French text, scholarly introduction, and detailed notes and appendices make it ideal both for students and for all lovers of poetry.
