Fabre's Bookof Insects is a retelling of Alexander Teixeira de Mattos' translation of Jean-Henri Fabre's Souvenirs entomologique, a project that Matto considered his greatest achievement. Fabre's work is a series of texts on insects and arachnids. It talks about insects in real life, mythology and folklore. He influenced the later writings of Charles Darwin, who called Fabre "an inimitable observer". Fabre, however, was a Christian who remained sceptical about Darwin's theory of evolution, as he always held back from all theories and systems. His special force was exact and detailed observation, field research, always avoiding premature general conclusions from his observations. ; 8vo .
