La Cigarra y la Hormiga
Jean de La Fontaine
Here is a lively eight-page presentation of GA. Both figures are dressed in human clothes. The grasshopper plays an electric guitar hooked up to a loudspeaker with a mouth that comes right out of its box! Other insects are jumping and jiving to his music! Pages 3 and 4 present a stark contrast between summer and winter. The ant here actually considers that the grasshopper might not pay her back. Asked what he did all summer, the grasshopper first answers that he spent it in the shade of trees. The next answer, "I sang day and night" does not have La Fontaine's crucial phrase "for the pleasure of others." "The lazy and careless will always end up poor and needy."
