Ivan Krylov: A Crawfish, a Pike,

Ivan (Andreyevich) Krylov

(1769-1844)

Russian writer of fables in the tradition of Aesop and 



La 

Fontaine


. Krylov satirized social and individual faults in 

the guise of beasts, producing 203 fables in nine books. 

They are still an integral part of Russian primary and 

secondary education.

A Crawfish, a Pike, and a Swan

(by Ivan Krylov, 1768-1844)



Whenever companions 

don’t agree, 

They work without accord;

And naught but trouble 

doth result,

Although they all work 

hard.

One day a crawfish, 

swan, and pike,



Resolved a load to haul; 



All three were 

harnessed to the cart,

And pulled together all. 



But though they pulled 



with all their might, 



The cart-load on the 



bank stuck tight.

The swan pulled upward to 

the skies;

The crawfish did backward 

crawl;

The pike made for the water 

straight —

It proved no use at all!



Now, which of them was 



most to blame

’Tis not for me to say;



But this I know: the load is 



there

Unto this very day!
background image

The moral of the verse 

is that

Accordance should 



prevail

Amid the people who 

have plans

To work but not in vain.
