Summary
This title makes a contribution to scholarship. This the most reliable translation of "Fables and Tales" by C.F. Gellert. The book constitutes the most important collection of German folklore which passes on the morals of the "Volk" through stories. These are translations of fables and tales written by C.F. Gellert. Gellert was an eighteenth century folklorist whose work has been canonized. Critics have argued that the stories are fundamentally homegrown and come from the German people (the "Volk"), and they speak directly to the heart of the people. These works are used less often for moral instruction in contemporary society, something the author laments, but are still important components of German folklore
