Aesop and His Fables

Little is known regarding Aesop’s place of origin or his life in general for that matter. It’s believed he was a Greek slave, and may have been born around 620 BCE.

However, what we do know about Aesop are his over 2000-year-old fables, with their long-enduring moral lessons. Mostly told through animal main characters, some of these famous stories include, “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse”, “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”, “The Tortoise and the Hare”, “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”, and “The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs.” Many phrases and idioms can also be attributed to Aesop, such as “sour grapes”, “crying wolf”, and “lion’s share”.
