They were written down as early as two thousand years on the cuneiform tablets used by the Sumerians in what is now Iraq and Iran. 2 Fables were used for education from a very early period in India too. A collection called the Panchatantra had been composed at least as early as the sixth century , and certain fables were later extracted into a separate collection for use by children, usually known as the Fables of Bidpai (or Pilpay). Bidpai is a learned Brahmin who tries to overcome the stupidity of three princes by encasing their lessons in short narratives.
From our perspective it is diﬃcult not to read it as a veiled representation of the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany. 31 The multiplicity of possible meanings is a symptom of the fable’s universality. Certainly it works as a general statement about the ease with which minorities can be blamed for disasters. The very slightly feasible allegation that the rabbits caused the earthquake quickly descends into the absurd contention ‘that carrot-nibblers with long ears cause ﬂoods’. The mordant humour (the ‘internal matter’ – a play on the rabbit’s edibility) adds to the eﬀect.
But even if it was not designed exclusively for children, it retains many of the characteristics of the fable. Much of the text concentrates on the best methods to train and manage a horse, but the same lessons are allegorically applicable to humans. ’18 Likewise, the abuse Sewell chieﬂy complains of is the ‘bearing rein’, and although this was genuinely a nineteenth-century practice designed to enhance horses’ appearance but causing them discomfort and shortening their lives, it also functions as part of the fable.
