Abstract
This volume comes out one year after its companion and with similar bibliographical data. It is a heavy book offering on some 323 pages half of La Fontaine's fables, each with a full-page colored illustration. An AI at the beginning is also a T of C. This volume presents those fables beginning with the letters L through V. This arrangement has a particular advantage: someone wanting to find a number of fables about one animal -- like the lion -- can find some of them grouped together here. Of course the character one seeks might be mentioned second in the title and then one still has to seek elsewhere. I find the illustrations simple and dramatic. Is there a certain lack of definition inherent in this art medium? Are the illustrations computer-generated? Among the best of the illustrations are La Lice et sa Compagne (15); Le Loup, la Chèvre et le Chevreau (61); Les Membres et l'Estomac (103); L'Ours et l'Amateur des Jardins (146); Les Deux Pigeons (180); Le Renard, le Loup et le Cheval (213); FG (232); and Les Souris et le Chat-Huant (274). In the end, I wonder if this artistic style does not have a lot to do with the art of recent graphic novels and comic books. The outer spine has been bruised and gouged.
