The Fables of Phaedrus

The Fables Of Phaedrus [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Fables of Phaedrus by Phaedrus Book Summary:

Animal fables are said to have originated with Aesop, a semilegendary Samian slave, but the earliest surviving record of the fables comes from the Latin poet Phaedrus, who introduced the new genre to Latin literature. This verse translation of The Fables is the first in English in more than two hundred years. In addition to the familiar animal fables, about a quarter of the book includes such diverse material as prologues and epilogues, historical anecdotes, short stories, enlarged proverbs and sayings, comic episodes and folk wisdom, and many incidental glimpses of Greek and Roman life in the classical period. The Fables also sheds light on the personal history of Phaedrus, who seems to have been an educated slave, eventually granted his freedom by the emperor Augustus. Phaedrus' style is lively, clean, and sparse, though not at the cost of all detail and elaboration. It serves well as a vehicle for his two avowed purposes—to entertain and to give wise counsel for the conduct of life. Like all fabulists, Phaedrus was a moralist, albeit on a modest and popular level. An excellent introduction by P. F. Widdows provides information about Phaedrus, the history of The Fables, the metric style of the original and of this translation, and something of the place of these fables in Western folklore. The translation is done in a free version of Anglo-Saxon alliterative verse, a form used by W. H. Auden and chosen here to match the popular tone of Phaedrus' Latin verse.

The Fables Of Phaedrus [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Telling Tales on Caesar by Fedro,Phaedrus,John Henderson Book Summary:

Cameos showcase Tiberius in private and Augustus in court, with Pompey the Great on campaign and Phaedrus himself struggling against prejudice and persecution, and tales feature all sorts - a toadying slave, wicked servant, vain musician, effeminate soldier, sexy poet, and rogue quack. These forgotten tales tell short and clear Roman parables of power and powerlessness. Humorous and acute, they explain, and protest at, the Caesars, and they sit perfectly among Aesop's sadistic lions, murderous wolves, and apes in purple."--Jacket.

This Aesop's Fable has been re-imagined as part of a social venture project to raise money for literacy charities. DERT works with emerging designers to create unique, customized books. Each DERT book features the design and conceptual artwork created by graphic design students."The Peacock" is a fable that imparts the reader with a message of self-worth. A peacock may be beautiful, but that is not the only quality worthy of praise; everyone is special and talented in his or her own way.Aesop's Fables are a collection of stories credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller who lived in ancient Greece from 620 - 560 BC. A keen observer of both animals and people, Aesop used the qualities and natural tendencies of animals to focus on human traits and wisdom within his stories. Each fable has an accompanying moral to be learned from the tale. Far from child-like moral lessons one would expect, these fables are also seen as clever jokes and witty one-liners that result in bite size pieces of wisdom for daily life.
