或者
…, as the life of Saul Kane, the protagonist who is a violent, drunken womanizer, is laid out in detail.

Shahnameh 词条

… regarded as a literary masterpiece, and definitive of the ethno-national cultural identity of Iran.

definitive在这里显然错误,句子不如改为:

Greene’s Groats-Worth of Wit 词条

The pamphlet continues with further exhortations to repentance followed by an allegory about a grasshopper and an ant, the former representing fecklessness, the latter representing thrift.

这里所谓的 “allegory” 实际是《伊索寓言》中的《蚂蚱和蚂蚁》。蚂蚱因夏天时歌舞升平肆意挥霍,导致无粮过冬,随即去找勤俭的蚂蚁借粮。故事并不是表现 "grasshopper“ 的 feckless。

这句话最好改为:
… followed by an allegory, which is derived from a famous fable of Aesop about a spendthrift grasshopper begging for food from a thrifty ant to survive the upcoming winter.
