Author Info
Not much is known about this Greek writer. His fables, always ending with a proverb summing up the story's moral, were written to demonstrate the frailties of human life. Many figures of speech, such as "sour grapes," are derived from Aesop's tales.
From the Publisher
Editors Note This book is the illustrated collection of the fables written by a slave named Aesop, who lived in Ancient Greece during the 5th century BC. Aesop is also mentioned in several other Ancient Greek works - Aristophanes, in his comedy The Wasps, represented the protagonist Philocleon as having learnt the "absurdities" of Aesop from conversation at banquets; Plato wrote in Phaedo that Socrates whiled away his jail time turning some of Aesop's fables "which he knew" into verses; Demetrius of Phalerum compiled the fables into a set of eleven books (Lopson Aisopeion sunagogai), which have been lost, for the use of orators.
