    Description
    In a series of pithy, amusing vignettes, Aesop created a vivid cast of characters to demonstrate different aspects of human nature. Here we see a wily fox outwitted by a quick-thinking cicada, a tortoise triumphing over a self-confident hare and a fable-teller named Aesop silencing those who mock him. Each jewel-like fable provides a warning about the consequences of wrong-doing, as well as offering a glimpse into the everyday lives of the Ancient Greeks.

    This definitive edition is the first translation into English of the entire corpus of 358 unbowdlerized fables. It is full annotated, with an introduction that rescues the fables from a tradition of moralistic interpretation.
