Abstract
The subtitle reads: Nouvelle initiation au Grec par l'Image, l'Analyse et les Tableaux synoptiques. It is just over 10½ x 8½ and has 72 pages and twelve tableaux. The 72 pages present nineteen fables. The book offers a number of helps beyond the Greek text. There are simple diagrammatic pictures, translations of phrases, comments, explanations of forms, principal parts of verbs, and grammatical explanations. I think that the author aims at introducing the Greek language through analysis of these fables of Aesop. That is a daunting task, but this book undertakes it well. Long live creative efforts by good teachers! Some of the work may be challenging; I seem to notice that all the noun declensions come at once at the end of the second fable. And there is a full plan of the verb and its parts by the end of the third fable. The fables chosen are good standard ones, beginning with The Fox and the Mask, GA, The Man and the Statue, GGE, and The Stag and the Vine. The tableaux present grammar charts. There is at the beginning a preface by Emile Bréhier and a letter from Emile Chambry. At the end there is an appendix on the Greek alphabet and then a helpful T of C that sets out the nineteen fables and the grammar learned with each of them. This book would be fun to teach or to learn from.
