“Kindness is seldom wasted.”—from “The Lion and the Mouse”
It is both amazing and wonderful that so much of the richness of our language and our moral education still owes a huge debt to a Greek slave who was executed more than two thousand years ago. Yet “sour grapes,” “crying ‘wolf,’” “actions speak louder than words,” “honesty is the best policy,” and literally hundreds of other metaphors, axioms, and ideas that are now woven into the very fabric of Western culture all came from Aesop’s Fables.
An extraordinary storyteller who used cunning foxes, surly dogs, clever mice, fearsome lions, and foolish humans to describe the reality of a harsh world, Aesop created narratives that are appealing, funny, politically astute, and profoundly true. And Aesop’s truth—often summed up in the pithy “moral of the story”—retains an awesome power to affect us, reaching us through both our intellects and our hearts.
This exclusive Signet Classic edition contains 203 of Aesop’s most enduring and popular fables, translated into readable, modern American English and beautifully illustrated with classic woodcuts by the great French artist J. J. Grandville.

伊索(Aesop,約公元前620年-公元前564年)
古希臘傳奇作家,被譽為西方寓言之父,生活在公元前六世紀的上半葉。
現今流傳于世的伊索寓言,充滿了詼諧和風趣。歷史上的真實伊索,世人所知甚少,有研究伊索的學者指出,伊索出生于希臘本土色雷斯的梅森布里亞城,并在 薩摩斯島上生活過一段時期,似乎曾因被俘而淪為奴隸。
伊索善于在談判和交涉中說一些短小的動物故事,而以這類故事機智巧妙地嬴得聲譽,在同時代人心目中留下了驚人的深刻印象。
后人將古希臘流傳的經典寓言故事編寫輯集,統歸在伊索名下,便相沿而成為現在的伊索寓言。
