Wisdom, mythology, inspiration, workplace, life, and other fables in the English collection of short stories
Aesop’s fables come from the people, so the lives and thoughts and feelings of the lower strata of society are reflected more prominently. For example, they expose the greed and selfishness of the rich; lash out at the wicked’s cruel nature; affirm the creation of wealth by labor; attack social inequality; satirize cowardice and laziness, and praise the brave struggle. Many fables teach people how to deal with the world, be good, distinguish between right and wrong, and become wise and intelligent. Aesop’s fables are an overview, a distillation and a summary of the life and struggles of the ancient Greeks, a spiritual legacy left by the ancient Greeks to future generations.
