Summary
Much of the richness of our language and moral education is owed to a Greek slave who was executed over two thousand years ago. Literally hundreds of metaphors, axioms, and ideas that are woven into the very fabric of Western culture-from "sour grapes" and "crying wolf" to "actions speak louder than words" and "honesty is the best policy"-all came from Aesop's Fables. An extraordinary storyteller who used cunning foxes, surly dogs, clever mice, 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. Included here are such fables as "The Country Mouse and the Town Mouse, " "The Wind and the Sun, " "The Farmer and the Stork, " "The Lioness, " "The Brash Candlelight, " "The Old Woman and the Physician, " "The Mole and Her Mother, " "The Swallow and the Crow, " "The Man Bitten by a Dog, " "The Fox and the Grapes, " "The Monkey and the Dolphin, " "The Hares and the Frogs, " and many, many more
