Content

Fable, a literary form with a long history and vigorous life force, contains profound meanings despite its usually short length. Ancient Chinese fables demonstrate an incisive moral vision and convey a great deal of life wisdom mainly through human stories.
The creation of fables in China flourished during the pre-Qin period (770-221 BC). Many fabulists at that time were leading thinkers of the world. The fables in Zhuang Zi and Lie Zi are characterized by soaring imagination, bold exaggeration, rich language and broad vision; these promoted the Taoist ideas of revering the Way, valuing Emptiness (formless, not bound by any concrete laws), the equality of things, and detachment from worldly concerns. The fables in Han Fei Zi are characterized by laconic and accurate language and put forth Legalist propositions of suiting political reforms to the time and situation and carrying out rigorous punishments and criminal law. Those in Zhan Guo Ce (Warring States Anecdotes) display a grandiose style of writing, and bring forward flexible strategies for heading off dangers in handling important diplomatic, military and domestic political issues.
Ancient Chinese Fables incorporates plenty of fables from the above pre-Qin classics and other excellent ones after the Qin Dynasty (221-206 BC), adding up to 121 pieces. Being widespread and full of wisdom, these fables have exerted great influence on the development of literature and language.
The English translations in this book were done by famous literary translators Yang Xianyi and Gladys Yang.
