The Fables by John Gay , Volume One

51 poems by the writer of The Beggar's Opera

John Gay had a humorously sardonic view of human nature. From three centuries ago, his Fables show that nothing changes. All life is here - charlatans, doxies, thugs, misers, the self-deluded, the gossips, the opportunist politicians ... and many animals who know better.

Fully illustrated with line drawings by Dandi Palmer.

Suitable for 14 plus and Adults
