dc.description.abstractThis book is a later remaking of Inkiow's 1999 Aesops Fabeln from Lentz. The book seems reshaped for adults. The first chapter is retitled from Ein Wort zuvor: Wisst ihr, wer Äsop war? to Wer war Aesop? The first sentence of that first chapter used to read this way: Um ehrlich zu sein, wir Erwachsenen wissen es auch nicht so genau (7). Now it reads Um ehrlich zu sein, keiner weiss es genau (8). New chapters here just after that first chapter include Die Abende bei Krösus (9) and Die Hinterlist (13). The earlier book had no divisions. This book has its three introductory chapters mentioned above and then two large collections: Geschichten von Tieren, die Aesop als Sklave erzählte (15) and Geschichten von Menschen, die Aesop als freier Mann erzaehlte (97). I doubt, by the way, that one can make this division of fables stand up on our historical evidence. Some titles change slightly, like Die klugen Krähen (33) here for Die klugen Krähe (30) there, and Bock here (57) for Ziegenbock there (54). There is at least one additional fable: Das Schilfrohr und der Olivenbaum (48). A quick sampling suggests that the texts are largely the same, but earlier texts have been modified into the versions here. The 1991 edition was itself a remake of Inkiow's earlier Die Katze Lässt das Mausen Nicht und andere Fabeln des Äsop from Schneider in 1991. The only illustrations here are two printer's designs, one of a bird pulling a worm out of the earth and the other of a running man. The former appears on the cover, title-page, and beginning page of the first collection, while the latter appears on the title-page of the second collection.en_US
