LibriVox recording of Fabeln by Magnus Gottfried Lichtwer. Read in German by marham63. Fabeln, Aesop-ähnliche Geschichten in Reimen, lehrreiche Gedichte - nicht immer mit gutem Ausgang, aber auch nicht ausschließlich deprimierend oder das Recht des Stärkeren betonend. Manchmal drückt sich hier Weisheit aus, manchmal sind es harte, eventuell satirische Kommentare in Bildnissen. So würde ich diese Fabeln umschreiben, die ich durch das Librivox-anniversary fand und gelesen habe. Zum Autor:...
