Tracing the impact of classical models on verse and moral fables of the eighteenth century, and studying the use of the fable by major writers--including Dryden, Pope, Swift, Gay and Cowper--in their historical and literary contexts, Mark Loveridge offers the first full account of a highly significant form of English and European literature.
