Product Description

The essential collection of more than two hundred of Aesop's famous animal fables. Many of these tales are so well known they have given us phrases we use every day - like dog in the manger or sour grapes - but even the rarer ones seem familiar, because their simple morals are based on universal truths. From the tortoise and the hare or the boy who cried wolf to the treacherous partridge or the big and little fish, Aesop's wise and foolish creatures are a lasting delight. Complete and unabridged.

Author Bio

Aesop probably lived in the middle part of the sixth century BC. A statement in Herodotus gives ground for thinking that he was a slave belonging to a citizen of Samos called Iadmon. Legend says that he was ugly and misshapen. There are many references to Aesop found in the Athenian writers: Aristophanes, Xenophon, Plato, Aristotle and others. It is not known whether he wrote down his Fables himself, nor indeed how many of them are correctly attributed to his invention.
