About Aesop

Although the three hundred fables in this collection are attributed to Aesop, and his name is synonymous with the form, it seems unlikely he was in fact anything more than a legendary figure. While some historical accounts maintain he was a slave with a prodigious talent for story-telling who lived during the sixth century BC, many believe it unlikely that this whole stock of fables can be attributed to one individual. However, what does seem clear is that the fables began their life as word-of-mouth stories long before being put down in writing.
