Summary:
This study provides a detailed account of the "Fables", including humour, the representation of animals, the literary qualities and the "moraliste" core. Maya Slater brings to light veiled satirical attacks, allusion to forgotten works and literature, and traces the obscure currents of thought, all this in the service of explicating the "fable" element.
