Every year I and some of my closest friends make a number of regular pilgrimages to some of the best book sales known to man. Now, while I won’t be bragging about any of my latest finds, I was quite happy with a few. And I won’t share the details of where they are, either. We’re a greedy lot.
But among the latest acquisitions was The Fables of Odo of Cheriton, translated by John C. Jacobs.
I know what you’re thinking:
But it isn’t that Odo.
I had never heard of Odo or his fables, but when I spotted the book I thought of one person: Laura Gibbs. And of course she’s put his fables online (check the link above for the Latin).
What’s more, she’s written an article about him recently: ‘Christianizing Aesop.’ It’s worth your time.
