For some, such didactic moralizing may be off-putting; but personally I find it refreshing, for it serves to elevate Les Chantes from a mere curiosity piece into something grander. Parts one through six consist of fourteen, sixteen, five, eight, seven and ten cabtos, respectively. This edition, translated by Guy Wernham, includes also a long introduction to a never-written, or now lost, volume of poetry.

However, for a 21st century reader, this book is a tremendous bore. I cannot, cannot satisfy this need. My dearest wish had been granted, I no longer belonged to mankind.
