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.

REVIEW 

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.

  1. Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic
    blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely
    be back.

  3. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance”
    between usability and visual appearance. I must say you
    have done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox.

    Superb Blog!
