Translated into Verse, from Homer, Ovid, Boccace, & Chaucer: With Original Poems. 'First edition of Dryden's collection of fables from Ovid, Homer, Boccaccio and Chaucer, completed and published the year of Dryden's death. "The golden Preface [of Dryden's Fables] describes his delighted progress from Homer to Ovid, from Ovid to Chaucer, and from Chaucer to Boccaccio, the volume constantly swelling in his hands; 'I have built a house,' he concludes, 'where I intended but a lodge'. Dryden's search for materials was far and wide. He plundered medieval as well as ancient story; he went to the greatest tellers of tales wherever they were, whether they were Greek, Roman, Italian, or English. The chime of Dryden's verse was never done" (Van Doren, 214-15). Includes selections from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Boccaccio, Ovid's Metamorphoses, and Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. Wing D-2278. CBEL II: 263.' ' A collection of some twelve thousand verses, including paraphrases or translations of the first 'Iliad', some of Ovid's 'Metamorphoses', and tales from Chaucer and Boccaccio. There is also a poem 'To my Honoured Kinsman, John Driden', verses addressed to the Duchess of Ormond, and lines on 'A Fair Maiden lady who died at Bath' [the wife of Lord Abingdon]. The preface, written in fine prose, contains an excellent appreciation of Chaucer as well as attacks on Milbourne and Sir Richard Blackmore.' 21 p.l., 616 (i. e. 558)  p. 34 x 22 cm Dewey:

Other Fable books that may be of interest from the Bestiary catalogue:
Where hints of racy sap and gum Out of the old dark forest come; Where birds their beaks like hammers wield, And pith is pierced and bark is peeled; Where the green walnut's outer rind Gives precious bitterness to the wind; There lurks the sweet creative power, As lurks the honey in the flower. In winter's bud that bursts in spring, In nut of autumn's ripening, In acrid bulb beneath the mold, Sleeps the elixir, strong and old, That Rosicrucians sought in vain, - Life that renews itself again! What bottled perfume is so good As fragrance of split tulip-wood? What fabled drink of god or muse Was rich as purple mulberry juice? And what school-polished gem of thought Is like the rune from Nature caught? He is a poet strong and true Who loves wild thyme and honey-dew; And like a brown bee works and sings With morning freshness on his wings, And a golden burden on his thighs, - The pollen-dust of centuries!Maurice Thompson [1844-1901]
