15 fables of Krylov Hardcover – 1965
Krylov is scarcely known to English-speaking people. This book brings to American children and adults the first verse translations that faithfully capture the music and humor, the flavor and appeal of the original Russian. Sparkling with sly wit and outrageous mischief, his tales pare away at the absurdities of man and society. Though he wrote more than a century ago, his donkeys, foxes, monkeys, and nightingales might well have been bred in our own century. Translated by Guy Daniels
