Notable Fabulists?[edit]

Hi, I have removed the following fabulists from the modern fabulists list as they don't have wikiarticle, and so may not be deemed notable (yet?):

when they have an article they can go back to the list. Coolabahapple (talk) 14:08, 5 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

History, section on Africa[edit]

Remove the Africa section? It is a lovely piece of text, but absolutely un-encyclopedic. Lebeda Karel (talk) 17:58, 9 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just came here to post this. I wouldn't call it lovely in the slightest, it reads like someone has a chip on their shoulder and a class to teach. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:36, 16 August 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm not sure if the section was the same in 2018 as now, but I came here to ask if the section on African fables could be cleaned up and given a more encyclopedic tone. One line that really stands out as judgmental instead of informative is this: His stories of the animal characters Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear are modern examples of African-American story-telling, this though should not transcend critiques and controversies as to whether or not Uncle Remus was a racist or apologist for slavery. The rest of the section is a bit suspect as well (As they have for thousands of years, people of all ages in Africa continue to interact with nature, including plants, animals and earthly structures such as rivers, plains, and mountains: Is it relevant that the people in Africa interact with nature a lot? does this need to be spelled out in such detail?).

No Brothers Grimm?[edit]

How can the section on fables in Europe not mention the Brothers Grimm and their collection of German fables? Those fables, and the Grimms, are probably more widely known than La Fontaine or any of the other authors currently listed. Or is it because they collected the stories, rather than write them?

The Grimms' productions are described as "folk tales". Someone with more expertise than I might comment whether they also qualify as fables.
Also, many of their stories may be closer to parable than to fable.
If the Brothers Grimms' productions prove to qualify as fables, I would welcome them to our list.
