About this book

Language: English

A delightful variation on the long tradition of bestiary writing, Jules Renard's short verse and prose poems have captured the imagination of readers and artists since they were originally written in 1894, with Ravel famously setting five of them to music. Presented in a new version by acclaimed translator Richard Stokes and enriched by Lucinda Rogers' beautiful pen drawings, this sumptuously produced volume Histoires Naturelles will captivate and enchant new generations of readers the world over.
