  • "Readers today will be amazed at how many contemporary expressions began in fables told thousands of years ago. And many of the best fables, about proud lions, quickwitted foxes, foolish frogs--even a few wise shepherds--were told by a man named Aesop, the greatest fable teller of all time."

This delightful selection of Aesop's parables--some universally recognizable, others refreshingly unfamiliar--is magnificently complemented by illustrations taken from a variety of antique editions of the fables. Among the artists represented in this beautifully reproduced new volume are Arthur Rackham, Thomas Bewick, Walter Crane, Charles Robinson, and Randolph Caldecott. This stunning compemdium includes fully captioned illustrations, a complete bibliography of sources, and a set of biographical notes on the artists.-- Publisher."

  • "Aesop was an Ancient Greek story-teller and slave, famed and cherished for his short fables that often involve personified animals. In the renowned collection of works that is Aesop's Fables, he weaves moral education and entertainment together into tales that have been enjoyed by many, many generations. A lot of the stories in Aesop's Fables, such as The Fox and the Grapes (giving us the term "sour grapes"), The Tortoise and the Hare, The North Wind and the Sun and The Boy Who Cried Wolf, are well-known across the world. The 1st century philosopher Apollonius of Tyana said of Aesop that "like those who dine well off the plainest dishes, he made use of humble incidents to teach great truths.""@en

The fables of Aesop have become one of the most enduring traditions of European culture, ever since they were first written down nearly two millennia ago. Aesop was reputedly a tongue-tied slave who miraculously received the power of speech; from his legendary storytelling came the collections of prose and verse fables scattered throughout Greek and Roman literature. First published in English by Caxton in 1484, the fables and their morals continue to charm modern readers: who does not know the stories of the tortoise and the hare, and the boy who cried wolf? This new translation is the first to represent all the main fable collections in ancient Latin and Greek, arranged according to the fables' contents and themes. It includes 600 fables, many of which come from sources never before translated into English."

  • "'Kindness is seldom wasted.' 'from 'The Lion and the Mouse' It is both amazing and wonderful that so much of the richness of our language and our moral education still owes a huge debt to a Greek slave who was executed more than two thousand years ago. Yet 'sour grapes,' 'crying 'wolf,'' 'actions speak louder than words,' 'honesty is the best policy,' and literally hundreds of other metaphors, axioms, and ideas that are now woven into the very fabric of Western culture all came from aesop's Fables. An extraordinary storyteller who used cunning foxes, surly dogs, clever mice, fearsome lions, and foolish humans to describe the reality of a harsh world, aesop created narratives that are appealing, funny, politically astute, and profoundly true. And aesop's truth'often summed up in the pithy 'moral of the story''retains an awesome power to affect us, reaching us through both our intellects and our hearts. This exclusive Signet Classic edition contains 203 of aesop's most enduring and popular fables, translated into readable, modern American English and beautifully illustrated with classic woodcuts by the great French artist J. J. Grandville. Includes: 'The Fox and the Grapes' 'The Ants and the Grasshopper' 'The Country Mouse and the Town Mouse' Edited and with an Afterword by Jack Zipes With an Introduction by Sam Pickering."@en
