Abstract
A very mixed group of twenty short writings. None seems to me Aesopic. The first, The Persons of the Tale, reminds me of John Barth's Menelaiad. The Yellow Paint moves toward Ade or Twain, The House of Eld towards Poe. The Man and His Friend and Something in It are quite close to Bierce. The Tadpole and the Frog sets the mark for brevity with its four sentences. The best of the book are The Two Matches, The Touchstone, and The Poor Thing. Inscribed at Smith College.
