dc.description.abstractHere is one of the thicker books in this collection, even though it is only 389 pages long. Apparently Stanley Paul did two printings of the book, one in 1911 and one in 1912. I am guessing that this copy belongs to the first. The verso of the title-page bears a stamp from March in 1912. Perhaps the main quality of this book is that it offers comprehensive coverage of La Fontaine's life; many works tend to focus on the fables and to offer a rather cursory overview of La Fontaine's life. In two chapters (197-256), Hamel walks through a number of the fables in the order in which La Fontaine presents them, offering fairly standard interpretations. I am surprised that he seems to me to miss what is going on in the first fable of all, GA. The photogravures tend to include important literary and historical figures around La Fontaine. This book was first sold by William Mullen and Son in Belfast. It belonged formerly to the Belfast Library. I would bet that by now this book is well superseded.en_US
