| In the first volume, the author extracts from the symbolic annuals of the collective imaginary a series of information about animals making use of prose, poetry, fables, bestiary, fairy tales, myths, visual arts, zoology, etc. demonstrating how the subject has been of great interest by many people and how it is related to our sides interpreting them as if they were in a mirror. In this way, the author emphasizes that the animals reveal, above all, human characteristics, figuring a pantheon of archetypical entities of deep implications, including psychological ones.
Presenting 74 animals besides those of fantastic meaning like the dragon, the phoenix and the griffin, the author stresses peculiarities of those animals which were mostly used around the centuries like a projecting screen of the individuals.
The second volume, of fictional nature, gathers a series of fables, on Esopo’s and La Fontaine’s ways, either dealing with extremely contemporary questions, such as poems, short-stories, critical texts or with themes of human depth.
The two volumes are like the two brain hemispheres, one of rational and didactic meaning, the other fictional and more concerned with emotions and art.
