TheMoreColas Breugnon is a charming romance of life in Burgundy three hundred years ago. It is an autobiographical novel, the story being told in the first person by Colas, who reviews his fifty years of life, and describes all its joys and sorrows. The story is gay and humorous, and full of wise observations about life. --- Colas Breugnon is the jovial Burgundian, the lusty wood-carver, the practical joker always fond of his glass, the droll fellow. Before everything, Colas Breugnon is a free man. He loves his king, but only so long as the king leaves him his liberty- he loves his wife, but follows his own bent- he is on excellent terms with the priest of a neighboring parish, but never goes to church- he idolizes his children, but his vigorous individuality makes him unwilling to live with them. He is friendly with all, but subject to none- he is freer than the king- he has that sense of humor characteristic of the free spirit to whom the whole world belongs.
