Complete Fables of Phaedrus by Delphi Classics (Illustrated) (Delphi Ancient Classics Book 104)
English | 2020| General Fiction| ePUB | 2.4 MB

The first century fabulist Gaius Julius Phaedrus was the first recorded versifier of Aesop’s fables into Latin, retold in a loose iambic metre. They are composed in a lively terse and simple Latin verse, with some elaborate style, serving as excellent model for students of the language. They were written not only to amuse and teach, but also to provide compelling satirical comments on the turbulent social and political life of first century Rome. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Phaedrus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
