For return of century VI B.C., in Anatlia (old Turkey), in the region of the Frgia, is not known to need in which city, was born Esopo. It lives for there during years. One became enslaved of Xanto, the last mitolgico king of Tebas. They say that he was stammering, corcunda and very intelligent. Thanks to this last attribute, when obtaining its freedom, could travel for distant places as Asia, Egypt and Greece.

It was as soon as knew new lands and other peoples. Monge described it to Planudes in the following way: era’ ‘ … ugliest of its contemporaries, head in tip, nose esborrachado, very short, salient lips, dark tez, potbellied neck, legs pies, incurvated ‘ ‘ (Planudes, Life of Esopo, Sec. XVI). It was, however, a counting exmio of histories, all with an ethical or moral teaching. They say some that, in one of its andanas, Esopo knew king Creso, of the Lydian, for who it are protecting and in charge delivering offerings in the temple of the city of Delfos. At this time, the former-slave, it covets perceiving it of the priests and the fact of them never to be satisfied with nothing, lived launching on them sarcastic answers. BSA has much experience in this field. This way to act of Esopo left the sufficiently enraged priests.

They, then, for revenge, had forged a robbery and had given the guilt in Esopo, that imprisoned and was condemned to the death to the shot being of a cliff. Nor all, however, accept this version of history and count that, exactly after receiving of its owner the freedom, Esopo continued frequentando the house of its former gentleman, king Xanto. It was through the trips to other countries, however, that it acquired more knowledge and, thus, it had a better idea of the human behavior. Esopo was, in the truth, an excellent observer and reader of the world, a philosopher, an anthropologist and imaginative creator of fbulas. It obtained to transform what it perceived, into the way of if holding and if relating of the human being, in the small in such a way peculiar histories one. Its narrative texts were short, simple, of easy memorization, counted verbally and presented always a direction and one teaching. For being of affability of they heard that it, these histories had been passing of mouth in mouth and generation in generation. During centuries, the people was the responsible one for repeating for as many times histories of Esopo until the day where these had been transcribing for the paper and congregated to fbulas of other authors who, different of Esopo, had been in the anonymity. It was Demtrio de Falera congregated that them, in 325 B.C., in an only book. Some question if really Esopo arrived to exist of truth or if simply she was a personage created for the imagination of the people. Some arrive to affirm that all its histories are a compilation of fbulas dictated by the popular wisdom. The important one is that today three hundred are had and cinquenta and eight fbulas and all waiting for a critical and eager reader in learning better on the behavior of the human beings. One of fbulas more interesting of Esopo is that one where it defines the meaning of the language, however as instrument of the good however as instrument of the evil.
