Fable "The Wolf and the Lamb". Let's talk about the works of Aesop and Krylov
Some of the most famous fabulists are Aesop andKrylov. These great people can find a work that is called the fable "The Wolf and the Lamb". The plot of both things is similar, but there are differences. First you can consider the creation of the ancient Greek fabulist. Unlike the work of the Russian poet, Aesop's fable is written in the form of prose. There are other distinctive features.
The fable "The Wolf and the Lamb", written by Aesop
The plot begins with the fact that the wolf saw a lamb. He carelessly drank from the stream. The wolf wanted to come up with an excuse that would help him eat a lamb. The predator went upstream. He said that the lamb wrung water, and he can not drink it. He began to make weak excuses, because he stood below the current and barely touched the water with his lips, so he could not do it. Then the wolf came up with a new charge. According to him, the lamb last year cursed his father with bad words. He rejected the accusation, explaining that he was not even born then, so he could not abuse anyone. Then the predator dropped the mask of the fighter for justice. Anyway, he was going to eat his prey, although he cleverly justified.
As Aesop's fable "The Wolf and the Lamb" shows,The villain will still do a bad thing, if he has, despite honest justifications. Now we can consider how another fabulist has written on this subject in a few centuries.
Ivan Krylov writes about the same case
The fable "The Wolf and the Lamb" was written by IvanAndreevich in a poetic form. The lamb came to drink to the stream. A hungry wolf saw him. He did not immediately eat prey, but decided to act almost legally, acting as a prosecutor. At first the predator said that the lamb is troubled by the water. He was very culturally justified. After all, he drinks in the low spot of the stream, so he can not do it. The wolf then thought up that the baby was rude to him last summer. The lamb said that he was not even born then. Toothed did not give up and accused the kid of the fact that, therefore, his brother then contradicted him. So the verbal confrontation of the wolf and the lamb was conducted. The fable ends with the fact that the predator realized the failure of his justifications of an unseemly act, confessing that he just wanted to eat. The fate of the prey was decided.
