An engaging look at the significance of traditional proverbs and their variations in the modern world from the world's foremost expert on proverbs. Mieder looks at how we adapt proverbs to rapidly changing social attitudes, investigates the origins of proverbs, and demolishes the myth that Benjamin Franklin was a prolific coiner of proverbs. 36 halftones. Line drawings.
