Aesop

  1. 1. Aesop
  2. 2. Aesop was an ancient Greek storyteller. He lived 2500 years ago, around 550 BCE. Little is known about the life of Aesop. Some say he was an ugly hunchbacked slave who so delighted his master with his stories that Aesop was given his freedom. One thing is known for sure Aesop was a very smart, resourceful and inventive man. We do know, however, that his name is associated with the emergence of fables as a genre in Greek literature. Aesop's fables were not written in his lifetime, but passed on from mouth to mouth. He was a keen observer of both animals and people. Most of the characters in his stories are animals, some of which take on human characteristic and are personified in ways of speech and emotions. Each fable has an accompanying moral .Over the centuries, Aesop's fables have been rewritten and published and illustrated and translated into almost every language in the world.
  3. 3.  Եզոպոսը հույն հեքիաթասաց էր:Նա ապրել է 2500 տարի առաջ, Մ.Թ.Ա. 550 թ.:Քիչ բան է հայտնի նրա մասին:Ոմանք ասում են, որ նա եղել է տգեղ,կուզիկ ստրուկ,ով այնքան է զվարճացրել տիրոջը իր պատմություններով,որ նա Եզոպոսին ազատություն է տվել:Մի բան է հայտնի,որ Եզոպոսը խելացի,ճարպիկ ու հնարամիտ մարդ էր:Մենք իհարկե գիտենք,որ նրա անվան հետ է կապված Հունական գրականության մեջ առակի ժանրի առաջացումը:Եզոպոսի առակները նրա կյանքի օրոք գրի չեն առնվել,այլ բերնեբերան անցնելով,հասել են մեզ:Նա ուշադիր հետևել է մարդկանց և կենդանիներին: Նրա առակներում կերպարները հիմնականում կենդանիներ են,որոնք անձնավորվել են և մարդկանց նման խոսել: Յուրաքանչյուր առակ ունի բարոյախրատական իմաստ:Դարերի ընթացքում Եզոպոսի առակները թարգմանվել,նկաազարդվել ու հրատարակվել են աշխարհի տարբեր լեզուներով:

  6. 6. The Bear and the Bees A bear came across a log where a swarm of bees had nested to make their honey. As he snooped around, a single little bee flew out of the log to protect the swarm. Knowing that the bear would eat all the honey, the little bee stung him sharply on the nose and flew back into the log. This flew the bear into an angry rage. He swatted at the log with his big claws, determined to destroy the nest of bees inside. This only alerted the bees and quick as a wink, the entire swarm of bees flew out of the log and began to sting the bear from head to heel. The bear saved himself by running to and diving into the nearest pond. It is better to bear a single injury in silence than to bring about a thousand by reacting in anger.
  7. 7. The Fox and the Crow A fox was walking through the forest when he saw a crow sitting on a tree branch with a fine piece of cheese in her beak. The fox wanted the cheese and decided he would be clever enough to outwit the bird. "What a noble and gracious bird I see in the tree!" proclaimed the fox, "What exquisite beauty! What fair plumage! If her voice is as lovely as her beauty, she would no doubt be the jewel of all birds." The crow was so flattered by all this talk that she opened her beak and gave a cry to show the fox her voice. "Caw! Caw!" she cried, as the cheese dropped to the ground for the fox to grab.
  8. 8. The Fox and the Lion A young fox saw a lion for the very first time. He was so frightened by the appearance of the great beast that he ran away as fast as he could. The second time he saw the lion, he hid behind a large rock and peeped out to see the lion. The third time he saw the lion, he went straight up to him, and said, "Hello, Mr. Lion."
  9. 9. Two Men and the Bear Two men were strolling down a forest path when they came across a bear. One man scampered up a tree and escaped the bear's claws. The other man knew there was nothing he could do, so he dropped to the ground and played dead. The bear went up to the man and sniffed about his ears. He pawed at him a few times. Thinking the man was dead, the bear walked away. After the bear left, his friend came down from the tree. "What did the bear say to you, friend, when he whispered in your ear?" asked his friend. "Oh," answered his friend, "He just told me that I should consider about traveling with friends who run out on their friends in times of trouble."
  10. 10. The Lion and the Mouse A Lion lay asleep in the forest, his great head resting on his paws. A timid little Mouse came upon him unexpectedly, and in her fright and haste to get away, ran across the Lion's nose. Roused from his nap, the Lion laid his huge paw angrily on the tiny creature to kill her. "Spare me!" begged the poor Mouse. "Please let me go and some day I will surely repay you." The Lion was much amused to think that a Mouse could ever help him. But he was generous and finally let the Mouse go. Some days later, while stalking his prey in the forest, the Lion was caught in the toils of a hunter's net. Unable to free himself, he filled the forest with his angry roaring. The Mouse knew the voice and quickly found the Lion struggling in the net. Running to one of the great ropes that bound him, she gnawed it until it parted, and soon the Lion was free. "You laughed when I said I would repay you," said the Mouse. "Now you see that even a Mouse can help a Lion."
