          Sinopsis
          This book, newly updated, contains the largest collection of Aesop’s fables available in English (the complete corpus of 357 fables).Aesop was probably a prisoner of war, sold into slavery in the early sixth century BCE, who represented his masters in court and negotiations and relied on animal stories to put across his key points. Such fables vividly reveal the strange superstitions of ordinary ancient Greeks, how they treated their pets, how they spoilt their sons and even what they kept in their larders. As these stories became well-known, 'Aesopic' one-liners were widely quoted at drinking-parties, and the collection eventually came to include more satirical tales of alien creatures - apes, camels, lions and elephants - which presumably originate in Libya and Egypt.
          Acerca de Aesop

          The Greek fabulist Aesop is thought to have lived from 620 to 560 BC. Legend depicts him as a slave with a gift for talking his way out of trouble or punishment, often reciting his fables to illustrate an injustice or human folly. He is also often described as having many physical deformities and a speech impediment. Mentioned by other classical writers such as Herodotus and Aristotle, Aesop is believed to have died by being thrown off a cliff in punishment for stealing a precious goblet.
