Aesop wrote many intelligent fables in here and some are real life lessons One of the most famous and also the one I take the most from is The Hare and the Tortoise We all know the story and the maxim slow and steady wins the race Being arrogant and fast isn’t all that I remember reading this at school for the first time when I was around five to six years old and somehow it stuck with me I always take the tortoise approach in life whether it be writing essays or training for marathons I take things at my own pace and do things in my own time It's the best way In terms of general readability though I did find some of these very repetitive It’s not the sort of thing you read a lot of at once as it all blurs into one It’s best to take your time and read a few a day or perhaps just pick out a handful that you think will appeal to you For every decent one I read I read two that were a bit pointless It’s very hit and miss

En er wordt zelfs gesteld dat hij nooit heeft bestaan en dat de naam niet meer vertegenwoorigd dan de legendarische uitvinder van de fabel Het is ook niet bekend of hij de fabels zelf schreef of hoeveel van hen met enige juistheid aan hem kunnen worden toegeschrevenDit is de eerste complete uitgave ooit in Nederland verschenen De illustraties zijn van de bekende Engelse houtgraveur Thomas Bewic. I must admit that at this time some of these tales fell flat are as antiuarian as Carriages ShepherdsBut still some of them are cynical enough to strike my fancy and most of them end with a little innocent critter dying and learning a mistake way too late all so that we can benefit There is misogyny racism class ism the works Its deletion of this from the 1001 Books List doesn't affect me or you reallyMy favorites include the one about the bat who denies his classification of rat when captured by a hound and of bird when caught by a cat escaping twice with his life Hey I must admit that travelling in Europe as a Mexican has many perks like others' attitude and treatment of you than travelling as an American Like Also the stupid girl who dreams while a pail of water atop her head tumbles ruining those aforementioned fantasies silly stupid girl is likewise a winner However it is not but the story of rabid rage ire about the bee stinging the cobra's hood who then crushes both the bee its own head under the wheel of a wagon to get her revenge no matter the price that really made me grin That one's absolutely Shakespearean

AesopicaZijn hoofdzakelijk sociale deugden die het leven aangenamer makenOver de auteurAesopus leefde waarschijnlijk in het midden van de zesde eeuw voor Christus Een vermelding in Herodotus geeft aanleiding te denken dat hij een slaaf was die toebehoorde aan een burger van Samos genaamd Iadmon Volgens de legende was hij lelijk en misvormdWe beschikken echter over zeer weinig exacte informatie over hem. AESOP'S ECHOES It is amazing how so many popular references and common senses are found here Aesop finds his echoes throughout the high flying philosophers and through the earthy grandmothers not only engrafted into the literature of the civilized world but familiar as household words in daily conversation of peoples across borders It is all pervading And to top it off such great pleasure tooWisdom and simplicity and entertainment through unforgettable stories what could be askedAesop The OriginsThe most famous of Greek poets Aesop was born about the year 620 BC by birth a slave He was owned by two masters in succession and won his freedom from the latter as a reward for his learning and witAs a freedman in the ancient republics of Greece Aesop now had the privilege and the permission to take an active interest in public affairs; and Aesop raised himself to a position of high renown a political ambassador of sorts In his desire alike to instruct and to be instructed he travelled through many countries And in his discharge of his commissions is said to have by the narration of some of his wise fables reconciled the inhabitants of those cities to the administration of their timesHere we can detect and understand some of the common themes that run through these fables those of keeping to one’s appointed placestation the utility of inherent strengths which might not be easily visible and of the perils of overreachingThese and other but still few simple strands of wisdom is reinforced again and again in different situations which is the essence of the craft of a fabulist Aesop The Fabulous Fabulist The Fable like any Tale will contain a short but real narrative; it will seek like any Parable to convey a hidden meaning but by the skillful introduction of fictitious characters; and it will always keep in view as its high prerogative and inseparable attribute the great purpose of instruction and will necessarily seek to inculcate some moral maxim social duty or political truthAnd yet even when trying to realize profound human truths through itself it so conceals its design under the disguise of fictitious characters by clothing with speech the animals of the field the birds of the air the trees of the wood or the beasts of the forest that the reader shall receive advice without perceiving the presence of the adviser Thus the superiority of the counsellor which often renders counsel unpalatable is kept out of view and the lesson comes with the greater acceptance when the reader is led unconsciously to himself to have his sympathies enlisted in behalf of what is pure honorable and praiseworthy and to have his indignation excited against what is low ignoble and unworthy This format also reuired the fabulist to keep a unity of character throughout The introduction of the animals as characters should be marked with an unexceptionable care and attention to their natural attributes and to the ualities attributed to them by universal popular consent The Fox should be always cunning the Hare timid the Lion bold the Wolf cruel the Bull strong the Horse proud and the Ass patient even as they are made to depict the motives and passions of menAesop’s fables achieve this unity and consistency so throughly that now they have passed into popular consciousness Indeed we can even assert that these animals as we know them today were created in these Fables Aesop The Companion Aesop's Fables are valuable companions These stories pack much distilled wisdom in them and can be employed with great effect It is said that a few good stories are better moral euipment than the best tracts of philosophersEven Socrates is mentioned by Plato as having employed his time while in prison awaiting the return of the sacred ship from Delphos which was to be the signal of his death in turning some of these fables into verse from what he had committed to memory over his long lifetime Socrates like Aesop understood that we are all moralists seeking the human judgements that inform ours and other’s actions But morality forced down by edict can be very forbidding This forbidding notion of morality was what inspired the philosopher Bertrand Russell to remark that the Ten Commandments ought to come with the sort of rubric which is sometimes to be found on examination papers of ten uestions ‘Only six need be attempted’ It is noteworthy that Socrates tried to emulate in his own teaching method the techniue of the great fabulist of letting the listener arrive at his own conclusions or at any rate avoiding the biggest pitfall any teacher can fall into of being perceived as a moral superiorIn how Socrates shaped up as a teacher we can very well see why the most earthy and yet the loftiest of philosophers considered Aesop’s fables to be masterpieces a constant source of companionship and teaching and also a manual on teaching wellWe would be well served to do the same
