The fables of Phaedrus by Phaedrus( Book )

501 editions published between 1596 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Né en Thrace vers 15 av. J.-C., Phèdre était de descendance grecque et d'origine servile. A Rome, il fut affranchi par un décret d'Auguste. Il rédigea en latin des fables en utilisant une métrique élégante. Il est le premier fabuliste, celui qui donna à la fable son habillage poétique, sa consistance littéraire et des intentions satiriques et moralisatrices

BABRIUS is the reputed author of a collection (discovered in the 19th century) of more than 125 fables based on 'Aesop's', in Greek verse. He may have been a 'Hellenised' Roman living in Asia Minor during the late 1st century after Christ. The fables are all in one metre and in very good style, terse, humorous and pointed. Some are original. PHAEDRUS, born in Macedonia, flourished in the early half of the 1st century after Christ. Apparently a slave set free by the Emperor Augustus (died A.D. 14) he lived in Italy and began to write 'Aesopian' fables. When he offended Sejanus the powerful official of the Emperor Tiberius, he was punished, but not silenced. The fables, in 5 books, are in lively terse and simple Latin verse not lacking in dignity. They not only amuse and teach but also satirise social and political life in Rome. In the later Middle Ages he was forgotten except in prose-versions of the fables

Telling tales on Caesar : Roman stories from Phaedrus by Phaedrus( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and Latin and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cameos showcase Tiberius in private and Augustus in court, with Pompey the Great on campaign and Phaedrus himself struggling against prejudice and persecution, and tales feature all sorts - a toadying slave, wicked servant, vain musician, effeminate soldier, sexy poet, and rogue quack. These forgotten tales tell short and clear Roman parables of power and powerlessness. Humorous and acute, they explain, and protest at, the Caesars, and they sit perfectly among Aesop's sadistic lions, murderous wolves, and apes in purple."--Jacket
