BLURB FROM THE COVER
Aesop’s Fables or the Aesopica is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and story-teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BCE. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with Aesop’s name have descended to modern times through a number of sources. They continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic mediums.
WOLF, meeting with a Lamb astray from the fold, resolved not to lay violent hands on him, but to find some please to justify to the Lamb the Wolf’s right to eat him.
THE WOLF AND THE LAMB
I enjoyed Aesop’s Fables. I read some of these when I was a kid but don’t think I read them all until now. I found some of the fables quite amusing. I remember enjoying them much more as a child before I realised how big and bad the world can be. There is something timeless about Aesop’s Fables even though they were written so long ago. I liked how each story had a moral attached. Aesop’s Fables was a fun way to pass a few hours. I doubt if I’d read them again but it was fun to read all of Aesop’s Fables.
