Who owns the copy rights to Aesop's fables?

User Avatar
Aesop died long before the Roman Empire did. This was long before there was copy write protection and even if there was, it expired long ago. The fables entered the public domain a long long time ago.

What was Aesop's first fable?

User Avatar
Aesop (620-560 BC) lived in Greece. Many fables are attributed to him. However, these were passed on by oral tradition and it was a few hundred years before anyone thought of writing them down! Apparently Socrates (469 -399 BC) made a start at making a written compilation while he was in prison, and Phalereous made another collection on 300 BC, both collections being made into one collection in due course. However but it seems that additional, non-Aesop, fables were also included. Analysis of the fables indicate that some/many of the fables seem to have origins dating back to before Aesop's time. So Aesop may not have been the 'author' of all the fables known as Aesop's Fables. So when was the first Aesop's Fable written? We don't really know! See Related Links below.

Who murdered aesop?

He wasn't murdered, he was sacrificed to Aphrodite. There is a difference. The person who 'did the deed' was some priest of Aphrodite, history does not record the name.

What are some of Aesop's fables' morals?

User Avatar
In Aesop's Fable, "The Tortoise and the Hare", the moral of the story is that a slow and steady pace wins the race instead of a fast, interrupted, and erratic method. It is taught in the story by the example of a fast hare and a slow tortoise agreeing to race to the finish line but the hare, believing there is no contest since he is so quick, is over confident and allows himself to be distracted and sidetracked by things like food and naps while the tortoise just keeps moving along focused in the direction of the finish line without interruption. In the end, the hare, full from snacking and tired from the antics along the way to the finish line, falls asleep and doesn't awake in time to race to the finish line before the tortoise on his straight and steady but slow pace gets there first and wins the race much to everyone's surprise and the hare's chagrin. For more examples, see the links section below.

What or who is 'Aesop' Diego Velazquez?

User Avatar
Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez (June 6, 1599 - August 6, 1660) was a famous Spanish artist who painted as the lead artist in the court of King Philip IV. One of his more well known paintings was his artist's conception of Aesop, the Greek slave from the 6th Century BC, who is known as the Father of Fables for the collection of fables attributed to him and known as Aesop's Fables. Of course there are no portraits of Aesop, and many historians differ on what his appearance may have been, or even his race, therefore, the painting is considered an "artist's conception" rather than a true portrait. For a photograph of this painting, see the link below to the WikiPedia page about Aesop.

Aesop (620-560 BC) was known for the genre of fables ascribed to him. Supposedly he was a slave who lived at the same time as Croesus and Peisistratus in the mid-sixth century BC in ancient Greece.

What are all of Aesop's Fables?

User Avatar
Aesop's Fables are a collection of very short stories that teach lessons, usually with main characters that are animals with human characteristics. The fables are said to have been written in ancient Greece by Aesop, a slave, in 620-560 BC. His name is pronounced EE-sup, with EE as in "Easter" and sup as in "supper". It can also be pronounced as EE-sop, with sop as in "sopping wet" There is not total historical agreement on whether he actually wrote the fables or merely was a story-teller who collected the stories. But most often it is the former that is accepted. The list of fables attributed to Aesop also varies, but according to WikiPedia (see link section for web link), here is a list of the most common ones said to have originated from Aesop: * Lion's Share * The Ant and the Grasshopper * The Bear and the Travelers * The Boy Who Cried Wolf * The Boy Who Was Vain * The Cat and the Mice * The Crow and the Pitcher * The Deer Without a Heart * The Dog and the Bone * The Dog and the Wolf * The Dog in the Manger * The Farmer and the Stork * The Farmer and the Viper * The Frog and the Ox * The Frogs Who Desired a King * The Fox and the Crow * The Fox and the Goat * The Fox and the Grapes * The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs * The Lion and the Mouse * The Mice in Council * The Mischievous Dog * The North Wind and the Sun * The Tortoise and the Hare * The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse * The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing * The Fox and the Cat --may be one of Aesop's fables * The Scorpion and the Frog -- attributed to Aesop but is not his
