Abstract
"I wish I could take the time to read through this study! Powell argues, I believe, that increased interest in La Fontaine in the nineteenth century arose largely from the visual artists who interpreted the fabulist in the new post-revolutionary age. The fables thus became for them a means of commenting on contemporary issues. The visual appendix (141-180) is extensive and provocative. To well known materials it adds for me a number of ephemeral political applications of La Fontaine. Kirsten Powell was a sometime contributor to "Bestia" and presenter at Beast Fable Society meetings. This study looks fascinating!"
