Description: 
James Grover Thurber was a great American author, cartoonist, and humorist. However, he is best known for his contributions both as a cartoonist and as short story writer for the New Yorker magazine. Throughout this investigation we have tried to depict his life which was successful in some ways, but at the same time, filled with hardships because of bad health. The first chapter deals with James Thurber s life. During his career, Thurber experimented with many types of writing. The second chapter refers to the historical period in which James Thurber lived. In the third chapter, we analyze his works. James Thurber found a way to make serious statements about human nature and society through his many short stories and books. Even though Thurber s experiences, influences, and feelings are not unique, his writings have found a place in history. Finally, Chapter four analyzes James Thurber s Fables for Our Time, a collection of Thurbers humor fables. This study focuses on moral lessons.
