In the 18th century a clear moral lesson was expected as the foundation of all literature. Educators and men of letters thus welcomed the Aesopian fable for its unique blend of didacticism, poetry, and disarming naturalness. Literally hundreds of volumes of fables were published during the century, as well as scores of theoretical studies.
