"...discusses examples of one of the major literary genres to use animals extensively: the fable. ... Salisbury examines the fables of Marie de France and Odo of Cheriton, to show how these tails are really about human society... The animals in these tales serve as metaphors of contemporary human behavior..." - Flores, Introduction
