By: V. Fausböll

Fausböll posits that "the so-called Aesop's Fables-so popular still, in spite of many rivals, among our Western children- are merely adaptations from tales invented long ago to please and to instruct" people of the East. Often, the resemblance to other tales, like Aesop's "is simply due to the fact that the Western stories were borrowed from the Buddhist ones ." Hence, our perspective on works such as 'The Fox and the Grape," "The Hare and the Tortoise", and "The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg" takes on greater significance.
