Cairncross, a leading translator of poetry and drama, is considered to be the best translator of Racine's works. In this collection of poems by well known poets from the French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Chinese, he demonstrates his ability with great skill. In the Fables, as in the other translations, he captures the mood in every case. Each poem appears in the original language as well as in English, and, ending with a number of his own poems, this is a true pleasure to read.
