“On a dit que Tacite, en écrivant les Moeurs des Germains,
avait voulu opposer, dans un contraste saisissant, la vie
simple et sévère des habitants de la Germanie à la
corruption qui gangrenait, sous l’empire, la civilisation
raffinée de l’aristocratie romaine. Dans la fable du Paysan
du Danube, La Fontaine oppose de même aux excès et aux
injustices de la domination de Rome, les revendications
des provinces danubiennes qu’elle tenait asservies sous
le joug du plus criant despotisme, et il se sert, pour
présenter ces réclamations, du plus déshérité de leurs
habitants.”

Jules Andrieu, The Paris Commune, The Fortnightly, Volume 10; Volume 16, 1871, p. 574

“Who could be so unmannerly as to say another word unless perchance some peasant of the Danube were found to urge this further question But these institutions which you call republican are they not the same as you had under the empire True you have perfected the art of civil war but except for that I see nothing but a series of striking resemblances between yourselves and the man of Sedan which seems to make of you and him such irreconcileable rivals M Barthelemy St Hilaire would soon give our peasant of the Danube his answer in the shape of a cell next Rochefort ”

J.S.Mill, 1900, paysan du Danube as unadjusted and naive character

Principles of political economy: with some of their applications …, Volume 1
By John Stuart Mill, 1900, p. 277

“The French peasant is no simple countryman no downright peasant of the Danube both in fact and in fiction he is now the crafty peasant That is the stage which he has reached in the progressive development which the constitution of things has imposed on human intelligence and human emancipation But some excess in this direction is a small and a passing evil compared with recklessness and improvidence in the laboring classes and a cheap price to pay for the inestimable worth of the virtue of self dependence as the general characteristic of a people a virtue which is one of the first conditions of excellence in a human character the stock on which if the other virtues are not grafted they have seldom any firm root a quality indispensable in the case of a laboring class even to any tolerable degree of physical comfort and by which the peasantry of France and of most European countries of peasant proprietors are distinguished beyond any other laboring population”
