Item Description...
Aesop's Fables, by Aesop, is part of the Barnes & Noble Classics series, which offers quality editions at affordable prices to the student and the general reader, including new scholarship, thoughtful design, and pages of carefully crafted extras. Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes & Noble Classics:
New introductions commissioned from today's top writers and scholars Biographies of the authors Chronologies of contemporary historical, biographical, and cultural events Footnotes and endnotes Selective discussions of imitations, parodies, poems, books, plays, paintings, operas, statuary, and films inspired by the work Comments by other famous authors Study questions to challenge the reader's viewpoints and expectations Bibliographies for further reading Indices & Glossaries, when appropriateAll editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.
 
As legend has it, the storyteller Aesop was a slave who lived in ancient Greece during the sixth century B.C. His memorable, recountable fables have brought amusing characters to life and driven home thought-provoking morals for generations of listeners and modern-day readers. Translated into countless languages and familiar to people around the world, Aesop's fables never tarnish despite being told again and again.

This collection presents nearly 300 of Aesop's most entertaining and enduring stories—from “The Hare and the Tortoise” and “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse” to “The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs” and “The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing.” Populated by a colorful array of animal characters who personify every imaginable human type—from fiddling grasshoppers and diligent ants to sly foxes, wicked wolves, brave mice, and grateful lions—these timeless tales are as fresh and relevant today as when they were first created.

Full of humor, insight, and wit, the tales in Aesop's Fables champion the value of hard work and perseverance, compassion for others, and honesty. They are age-old wisdom in a delicious form, for the consumption of adults and children alike.

D. L. Ashliman is emeritus professor at the University of Pittsburgh. He taught folklore, mythology, German, and comparative literature at that institution for thirty-one years. He has also served as guest professor at the University of Augsburg in Germany.

More About D. L. Ashliman, Aesop & Arthur Rackham

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Aesop was a fabulist or story teller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. Although his existence remains uncertain and (if they ever existed) no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
There's a fable for everyone  Aug 13, 2006
The basis behind Aesop's Fables is the fact that this storyteller used animals to teach certain lessons that turn out to be contradictory if you have the time to compare them.

Reading the scholarship at the very beginning really helped me to grasp the fables more than I would have on my own. Unfortunately, I feel the overall scholarship was biased and I'm quite perturbed at how fashionable it is in the academic community today to discredit anything Greek. Sure, there were civilizations before the Greeks and much of what Greece had has been lost due to conquests of the country and an untold number of wars that were no fault of theirs, but that doesn't mean that everything Greek is to be shrouded in a thick mist of doubt and/or automatically discredited.

Whether or not Aesop was real and whether he/she was a singular storyteller or a group of storytellers remains to be seen but one thing is for sure and that this edition is a very easy, quick read. But *do* take the time to really read and appreciate the use of animals in teaching lessons (and especially to the lessons themselves!).

A great tale to read after you finish this is George Orwell's "Animal Farm," which incorporates the animal as storyteller theme quite nicely (and the book that scholar D.L. Ashliman recommends to the reader while discussing the finer points of the fables at the beginning of this edition).

Many of these fables will stick with you because of their timelessness. This is a great addition to any library and a must on your classic literature "To Read" list. - Donna Di Giacomo
