Summary
A program about the life and work of the great-and enigmatic-fabulist whose renditions of Aesop in verse hold up animals as a mirror for man. Splendidly illustrated 18th-century books containing the fables as well as other stories by La Fontaine provide the visuals for some of La Fontaine's most charming and trenchant fables-light-handedly moral, elegantly voiced, and a sourcebook of what have become some of France's most frequently-used aphorisms.
