The Author

Aesop

Aesop (c. 620–564 BC) was a story teller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. Numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics. Scattered details of Aesop's life can be found in ancient sources, including Aristotle, Herodotus, and Plutarch.
