'An ass, clothed in the skin of a lion...'
Aesop's animal fables are some of the earliest stories ever told, thought to have been composed by a slave in Greek antiquity and giving glimpses of a world that is harsh, pitiless and yet also eerily familiar.
Aesop is believed to have lived in 6th century BC. Aesop's The Complete Fables is available in Penguin Classics.
