Le roi et le perroquet ou le transfert de l’ame


I’ve been having trouble doing anything online today due to a recurrent fault with the phone line so here’s something florid and serpentine from Figaro illustré for December, 1896. The title is something about a king and a parrot but that’s as much as I’m able to tell you.

    “The King and the Parrot, or the Transfer of the Soul”

    I could translate the whole thing, if you’re interested.

    It is a persian myth translated into French, but that’s as much as I could read, right now. Must be interesting, for sure…
