Cowley's portion appeared separately under the title of The Country Mouse in his volume of essays. In the following century the friends Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope combined in a similar imitation of Horace's Satire in octosyllabic couplets, with Pope playing the part of the story-teller from line onwards and attributing the tale to contemporary fabulist Matthew Prior. At a slightly later date Rowland Rugeley was to imitate their performance in much the same manner in "The City Mouse and Country Mouse: a fable to a friend in town".

In all versions of the original fable, much is made of the poor fare upon which the country mouse subsists. Dried grey peas and bacon are frequently mentioned and it is these two that the early 19th century author Richard Scrafton Sharpe uses in a repetitive refrain to his lyrical treatment of "The Country Mouse and the City Mouse". The stories are told in song measures rather than narrative, and it was in a later edition that this retelling appeared. This cat had never tasted a bit of bread, and had come no nearer a mouse than to find its tracks in the dust.

The poor woman advises her pet to be content with its lot. Unheeding, the lean cat sets off for the palace. Owing to its infestation by cats, however, the king had ordered that any caught there were to be put to death. The lean cat dies, regretting that it had not listened to the old woman's wise advice. In this she inverted the order of the visits, with the country mouse going to the city first, being frightened by a cat and disliking the food. Returning the visit later, the town mouse is frightened of the rain, the lawnmower and the danger of being stepped on by cows.

The story concludes with the reflection that tastes differ. A segment from the tale was incorporated into the children's ballet film The Tales of Beatrix Potter , danced by the Royal Ballet with choreography by Frederick Ashton The ballet was subsequently performed onstage in and In the story was made into a French silent film, with puppet animation by the director Wladyslaw Starewicz , under the title Le Rat de Ville et le Rat des Champs. In this updated version, the urban rat drives out of Paris in his car to visit his cousin on the farm. They return to the city and visit a nightclub but their revels end in pandemonium with the arrival of a cat.

Recognizing that city life is too hectic for him, the country rat prefers to dream of his urban adventure from the safety of his home. The main action takes place on the supper table and is governed by the unexplained need for silence.

When the reason for this is revealed as the cat, the cousin escapes into the street, only to face the worse hazards of the traffic. In , the fable was whimsically adapted by Evelyn Lambart for the National Film Board of Canada using paper figures and brightly coloured backgrounds. They leave to run a gauntlet of adventures, from which William returns to settle gratefully in his peaceful country retreat.

Town Mouse and Country Mouse

Is the uncle old or young? Did you made this story up but have it kind of like the Aesop tales? Malin — February 25, This Aesop tale in which the Town Mouse and the Country mouse both experience each others very different lives in the town and country. The two mice in this poem are very opposite in their ways. The only thing the two mice have in common is that they both like cheese. It is funny that the cheese they talk of in the ladder is not their own but that of the owners of the homes they sneakily live in!
