The Story of Reynard the Fox

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Thomas James Arnold, trans.

New York: The Heritage Press, 1954

A verse translation of the original German poem Reineke Fuchs by Goethe. The German version used by Goethe, produced in Berlin in 1794, was based on the Low German text of 1498, which was itself likely derived from a Flemish version of the early thirteenth century. It is here rendered into rhymed couplets, and illustrated with twentieth century wood engavings by Fritz Eichenberg.
