Fables of La Fontaine written by Jean de La Fontaine

 

Fables of La Fontaine written by Jean de La Fontaine

Synopsis:

Translated From The French by Elizur Wright.

Children's Literature

In the late 1920s, Marc Chagall was commissioned to illustrate the fables of the French poet Jean de La Fontaine. Fortunately, almost 70 years later, the results of that incomparable pairing are made available to the English-speaking public in book form. Marc Chagall's Fables of La Fontaine includes 43 fables, many of them familiar ("The Fox and the Grapes," "The Horse and the Ass") since La Fontaine often put his own witty spin on Aesop's work. The exuberance and rich color of Chagall's gouaches are echoed in the typography and layout. Words (some in color) dance, spin, and leap across the page rather than marching in the usual left-to-right, precise black lines.
