Les Fables choisies, mises en vers par M. de La Fontaine, appelées simplement Fables de La Fontaine, sont trois recueils de deux c...ent quarante trois fables allégoriques publiés par Jean de La Fontaine entre 1668 et 1694. La plupart, pas toutes, mettent en scène des animaux anthropomorphes et finissent, parfois commencent, par une morale. L'auteur y invente un genre en rupture avec les traditions ésopique, évangélique et humaniste, où le style et l'esprit plus que le propos se veulent didactiques. Modèle du français moderne, ces apologues sont utilisés dès le début du xviiie siècle comme support d'enseignement par les jésuites, principal corps enseignant en France jusqu'en 1763, et par les précepteurs familiaux, puis deviennent, sous la Troisième République et jusqu'après guerre, un incontournable de l'école primaire.
