Excellent introduction by J.G.

In just three sentences, J.G. makes an important and arresting observation about the nature of fables and their characters:

Aesop’s fables, which date back to the 5th Century BC, share similar themes. Because their themes are expressed through characters, they share similar characters as well. In fact, the characters in fables are so similar it would be impossible to tell them apart without reading the stories themselves. There are three primary types of characters in fables: wise, foolish, and clever.
