Of Reynard the Fox is a work of anti-Semitic propaganda by the Dutch Nazi-sympathizer Robert van Genechten. His book, which started life as a series of articles, retells the Reynard Cycle, a collection of medieval folk tales from England, Holland, Germany, and France. Among his best-known children's novels are The Midnight Folk and The Box of Delights. Other writings include Masefield's long narrative poem Dauber (), which concerns the eternal struggle of the visionary against ignorance and materialism, and Reynard the Fox (), which deals with many aspects of rural life in England.
