When did Aesop write his fables?
The historians are not all in agreement on whether all the fables were written by Aesop or if he was a storyteller who collected and told stories written by others. Most believe he wrote most of what are attributed to him. He is mentioned in historical records and described as a slave and storyteller in ancient Greece who lived from 620-560 BC. So it is theorized that the most of his fables would have been written in the 6th century B.C.
Asked in Aesop
Why did Aesop write and collect fables?
Fables are very useful as teaching stories. They each demonstrate one or more moral truths that are fun to discover, and that told in such a way that no person is exposed and humiliated. They are used to teach, not punish. Some of them are very ancient, perhaps tens or hundreds of thousands of years old.
Why did Aesop write fables?
he did because it was a way to make him and other people happy. whenever he told them they all had morals so that the other slaves he worked with all had a glimmer of hope that the days of torture would soon be over and the people who had bought them to work for them would drawv the short straw this time.
