dc.description.abstractThis is a first printing, without dust-jacket, of a book already included in the collection from its second printing. As I wrote there, six fables are grouped together and introduced as such. The introduction (aptly titled What Sort of Book Is This?) observes very few writers who have read in the Gesta have left it without thinking, 'What fine stories! Perhaps I can tell them better!' And many have proved that they could (x). The Dog and the Donkey is told at a leisurely pace, with three attempts by the donkey and an unusual conclusion to the story: the master, berated by his wife for breaking a chair, befriends the donkey! On Just Being Yourself is a replay of The Tiger and the Brahmin: a tiger threatens a kind elephant, and a lion intervenes. It plays on whether a being ever does more than just act out its nature. Only The Dog and the Donkey works off of a familiar Aesopic subject.en_US
