Aesop's Fables

Aesop's Fables at Eddery

Aesop's Fables are stories from Ancient Greece with morals, ideas for discussion and great examples of communication.

Aesop's Fables are a great Ancient Greece resource from Eddery.Com!

My Favourite Aesop's Fables

I like this fable of Aesop, because I feel that too many people have too much to say about what is right or wrong for other people - they should try it themselves!

The Crab and its Mother

I also like this fable of Aesop, and I hope that I can (sometimes) leave a good smell in the world! :-)

The Old Woman and the Wine Jar

I like this fable of Aesop, because my father told me this story when I was a boy and argues with my brothers. It's moral and significance stayed with me.

The Father and his Sons

Here is one of Aesop's Fables that I don't like - perhaps I could enjoy it more if the moral was "Slow but steady wins the race, SOMETIMES!

The Hare and the Tortoise

By the way, if you cam here looking for "the hair and the tortoise" or "the tortoise and the hair" .... this is the Aesop's Fable you want! The Hare and The Tortoise - Enjoy!

About Aesop's Fables

The Aesop's Fables published on this site are as they appear in the translation of Aesop's Fables by George Fyler Townsend.

I have added the Aesop's Fables to Eddery.Com in the order they have appeared in Townsend, use the menu on the left to navigate to the fables.

Go to this Aesop's Fables page to see all the fables, in text format, not yet added to the pages. (This is the page I work from as I add the fables - it will be replaced with a page showing ALL the fables, eventually).

If you are interested in knowing more about the life of Aesop and would like to read a biography, go to this Aesop's Biography page to see the Life of Aesop by George Fyler Townsend.
