Fábulas Forenses de Miguel Esteves Sagui
Esteves Saguí, Miguel
Serrano Redonnet, Antonio E
Here is something a bit exotic. I seem to have found this book of the poetry of Miguel Esteves Sagui during a Beast Fable Society conference in Venezuela in 1991. The best sense I can give of it comes from a review in The Americas, published by the Academy of American Franciscan History in 1984. I cannot establish the author of the review. In the second volume of the series, the editor presents fables by Miguel Esteves Sagui, a poet, lawyer, and a translator of classical Greek and Latin literature whose life spanned the years from independence to the end of the nineteenth century. The present volume introduces the contemporary reader to Sagui's fables and poetry -- some published here for the first time -- dealing with the law, the courts,and life along the steets and plazas of Buenos Aires in a style reminiscent of Aesop (264). As the closing T of C indicates, there are some fifty-six fables, besides two in an appendix.
