Who is Aesop ?
We all have heard of Aesop Fables , but who is Aesop ?
Aesop was a greek storyteller also known as a fabulist, or writer of animal fables.
He is thought to have lived c.620 - 564 BCE . Nobody quiet knows a lot that is certain about his existence and across many storytelling traditions we find references to stories and short fables that have been accredited to him. A lot of his stories and tales are animal fables or feature inanimate objects  that posess human characteristics . Each tale usually has a moral about the multifacets of teaching a life skill. So no proper aesop biography can be given and the question Who is Aesop remains open and today can only be answered by getting aquainted with his short fables.

Short Fable - Fables Animals
The Wolf and the Lamb

Wolf, meeting with a Lamb astray from the fold,

resolved not to lay violent hands on him,

but to find some plea to justify to the Lamb

the Wolf's right to eat him.

He thus addressed him:

"Sirrah, last year you grossly insulted me."

"Indeed," bleated the Lamb in a mournful tone of voice,

"I was not then born."

Then said the Wolf,

"You feed in my pasture."

"No, good sir," replied the Lamb,

"I have not yet tasted grass."

Again said the Wolf,

"You drink of my well."

"No," exclaimed the Lamb,

"I never yet drank water,

for as yet my mother's milk

is both food and drink to me."

Upon which the Wolf seized him

and ate him up, saying,

"Well! I won't remain supperless,

even though you refute every one

of my imputations."

Short Fable - Fables Animals
The Wolf and the Lamb

A Wolf came upon a lamb straying from the flock, and felt some compunction about taking the life of so helpless creature without some plausible excuse.

So he cast about for a grievance and said at last , " Last year , sirrah, you grossly insulted me."

" That is impossible, sir" bleated the lamb,
" for I wasn't born then."

" Well, " retorted the wolf, " you feed in my pastures."
" That cannot be, " replied the lamb,"
for I have never tasted grass."

" You drink from my spring , then"
continued the wolf.

" Indeed , sir, " said the poor lamb,
" i have never yet drunk anything but my mother's milk."

" Well , anyhow, " said the wolf,
" I am not going without my dinner."

And he sprang upon the lamb and devoured it without more ado.

The Aesop for Children

Short Fable - Fables Animals
The Wolf and the Lamb

A stray Lamb stood drinking early one morning on the bank of a woodland stream. That very same morning a hungry Wolf came by farther up the stream, hunting for something to eat. He soon got his eyes on the Lamb.

As a rule Mr. Wolf snapped up such delicious morsels without making any bones about it, but this Lamb looked so very helpless and innocent that the Wolf felt he ought to have some kind of an excuse for taking its life.

"How dare you paddle around in my stream and stir up all the mud!" he shouted fiercely. "You deserve to be punished severely for your rashness!"

"But, your highness," replied the trembling Lamb, "do not be angry! I cannot possibly muddy the water you are drinking up there. Remember, you are upstream and I am downstream."

"You do muddy it!" retorted the Wolf savagely. "And besides, I have heard that you told lies about me last year!"

"How could I have done so?" pleaded the Lamb. "I wasn't born until this year."

"If it wasn't you, it was your brother!"

"I have no brothers."

"Well, then," snarled the Wolf, "It was someone in your family anyway. But no matter who it was, I do not intend to be talked out of my breakfast."

And without more words the Wolf seized the poor Lamb and carried her off to the forest.
