Book Introduction: Esopic fables upon what Matthew Arnold handsomely calls the hard unintelligence of the modern mind. To certain wandering, irresponsible imaginations, not greatly concerned with archaeological exactitude, they bring hints of an old, homely Greek life at a period when Greek sculptors were just beginning to fashion for their joy smiling figures from the marble of their islands. Knowing nothing of the actual daily events of the time, we are apt to think of the whole Grecian people as wearing the smile of lighthearted health and amiability as they welcomed the approach of their young god Dionysus over the Thracian hills, and breaking easily into laughter as they discussed the eccentricities of human nature in fair and shady resting places, full of summer sounds and scents, such asP haedrus andS ocrates a century later chose for their dia%j logue on the subject of love.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
