The complete fables of Jean de la Fontaine by Jean de La Fontaine( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charming and elegant, Jean de La Fontaine's (1621-1695) animal fables depict sly foxes and scheming cats, vain birds and greedy wolves, all of which subtly express his penetrating insights into French society and the beasts found in all of us. Norman R. Shapiro has been translating La Fontaine's fables for over twenty years, capturing the original works' lively mix of plain and archaic language. This newly complete collection is destined to set the English standard for the oeuvre of one of the world's greatest fabulists

No witnesses : poems by Paul Monette( Book )

2 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Come, what can the body do but go on, when the best of us are eaten from within?" writes Paul Monette in the titular poem. This mixture of doom and determinedness is played out with humor and warmth in Monette's poetry. In this quicksilver collection, his words are in perpetual motion, traveling from the Parthenon to Ohio and everywhere in between. Meditating frequently on sex, nostalgia, and love, these poems are serious without ever becoming humorless. They include charming and funny monologues from Isadora Duncan and Noel Coward
Appropriation as agrarianism : distributive justice and the early history of the Colorado doctrine of prior appropriation by David Schorr( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contes et nouvelles en vers by Jean de La Fontaine( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Though they were first written over 300 years ago, this is the first complete English translation of Jean de La Fontaine's comedic classic Contes et nouvelles en vers. Both sexually charged and wickedly funny, La Fontaine's Tales will surprise readers who know 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 are nearly seventy illustrations dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, many of them rare, as well as extensive commentary by the editor."--Jacket
