Debate about continuing the war rages in the Greek camp, and the hero turns to his companion Odysseus to answer claims that have been made for staying on and fighting. If we fight and die, Achilles notes, home is gone but fame will be everlasting. But if we leave now, there will be a long life in the land of our fathers. The Greeks are stunned at these words. Is Achilles really leaving Troy? Soon, old Phoinix speaks up, calling Achilles his “dear child” and recalling how, when Achilles was a “mere child,” he accompanied the boy to tutor him.
Socrates recognized that the heart of the Aesopic fable is a form of impersonation: of animating the inanimate, of turning abstractions into realities. Such metamorphoses are everywhere in the fables, but perhaps nowhere more central to the youthful reader than in those concerned with education and its implements. Take, for example, the story of the thief and his mother (Perry 200). A schoolboy stole a writing tablet from another student and took it home to his mother. Instead of scolding him for stealing, she praised him.
Instead, I show how the fables constitute a literary system, a world through which the child may reimagine the institutions, individuals, and • 36 • Ingenuity and Authority idioms of everyday experience. 4 Aesop’s impact on Greek education was almost immediate. In addition to works by Homer, the dramatists, and the epigrammatists, the fables were at the heart of early reading and writing. A telling moment appears early on in Aristophanes’ The Birds (first performed in 414 BC). The Athenian Pisthetairos is trying to explain to the bird Koryphaios how the birds once ruled the world.
