Abstract
I had first found these two in a German translation in 1953: Zwei Fabeln. At this flea market, I was really looking at another book sitting on top of this magazine when I saw the small note pictured as tacked onto the fence on the cover advertising these two fables. What a find! As I wrote there, these two witty stories may stretch beyond the limits I would want to put on fable. The sophisticated winged aristocratic lion from Venice learned how primitive his fellow lions in Africa were-but had he become like them? The faithful steer was faithful to fighting and to his lady, and his faithfulness impressed the matador who killed him. The stories raise good questions. I would probably put them into the category of parable.
