About this title:

Synopsis: "Aesop's Fables Set In Verse" is a selection of these venerable short tales, which the author has augmented by setting them in verse. But their modest bearing belies their true nature. All virtually metaphorical, they are succinct commentaries on the foibles of the human psyche. As insightful and practicable as they were at the time of their creation two and a half millennia ago, they warrant the same level of recognition today. Reading them, one cannot avoid linking Aesop's characters, in whatever guise they are depicted, with people of their acquaintance, either personal or by repute. H. Jerome Alter feels that the verse setting into which he has carefully placed them is an enhancement feature which imparts a musical flow to the details as they unfold. His sense is that well-crafted poetry is artistically superior to prose.

About the Author: On a light note, H. Jerome Alter has couched a selection of Aesop’s fables in verse. The lessons derived from them are as applicable today as they were at the time of their creation two and a half millennia ago. Such is the immutability of the human psyche. Mr. Alter’s early years were spent in New York City and New Jersey. He was educated at NYU, Brooklyn College, and Columbia University. Mr. Alter was a professional musician, and a teacher in the New York City Schools. Upon retirement, he moved to rural New Mexico with his wife and two children. He built a home on 20 acres atop a mesa overlooking a mountain valley. His principal avocation has been adventure travel. He has visited over 140 countries on all continents, including both polar regions. Mr. Alter enjoys gardening, landscape architecture, musical activities, painting, photography, and rambling in the nearby Mogollon Mountains.
