Bibliographic details:

Comments:
QUERY: do all of the poems in this collection need to be tagged 'translated from: Fontaine'? It's a bit ambigious as to whether they're all from Fontain, esp. with the first few having refs to Boccaccio etc. MISCELLANY GENRE: collection of translations of Fontaine.
