These are the Fables of Hame’asef: The Way of the Modern Fable at the Early Hebrew Haskalah
דרן המשל המודרני בראשיתה של ההשכלה העברית: ללמוד מוסר השכל במשל ומליצה
The fable was one of the most popular genre of the European Enlightenment as well as of the Hebrew Haskalah. Many fables were published in Hameasef, the first modern Hebrew journal (1783-1811) that opens the period of modern Hebrew literature. The fables published during the early period of Haskalah in Germany were recycled in textbooks and other publications. Some of them were original, but most of them were adaptations of the classical Aesopian fables or their Jewish equivalent, Mishlei Shualim by Berachyah Hanakdan.
