Aesop’s Fables refers to a collection of fables thought to have been written by legendary Greek fabulist Aesop (circa 620-560 B.C.). Little was known about Aesop from credible records. According to Herodotus, Aesop was a slave of African descent and eventually was freed by his master.

The fables called Aesop’s fables were preserved through some people’s verse translations. The most famous of these fables include “The Fox and the Grapes” (from which the idiom “sour grapes” was derived), and “The Tortoise and the Hare”.

Aesop’s creation has been and still is very successful and has been copied by writers of fables in all ages and in any countries. The main characters in these stories are animals, and each story demonstrates a moral lesson. The fables remain a popular choice for moral education today.

作者

Aesop(伊索)

伊索(620 BC–560 BC)是希臘最偉大的寓言家,亦是古希臘時期著名的說書人。他曾在(希臘)薩摩斯島(Samos)上為雅德蒙(Iadmon)的奴隸,後於德爾菲(Delphi)一地遇害慘死。他雖出身為奴隸,但是因機智與豐富才學,得以被釋放成為自由民。

伊索的寓言故事並非僅旨在教導人類道德精神,他也以動物形象,闡明出人性的敗壞與良善。這也是各年齡層的讀者深受《伊索寓言》吸引的原因。

《伊索寓言》乃西方寓言文體文學的祖師爺,現今世界各地有數不清的各種語言譯本流傳。伊索藉由不同生物的生態與習性,用巧妙的譬喻手法,簡約的機智言語,生動活潑地刻畫出人性。書中每一則故事均富含深意:有啟發、有訓誡、有諷刺、有警示。從中,我們不僅可以欣賞到優雅的遣詞用字,更可學到先人寶貴的生活智慧與處世哲學。
