abstract

Fluctuating between the fantastic character of the Aesopian fable and the concrete nature of the Roman society, Phaedrus gives objects two different roles: in tales about animals, objects are 'foreign bodies', and serve a metaphorical function in line with the moralizing purpose of the story. In tales about humans, on the other hand, objects 'define' characters, and root the story more deeply in a specifically Roman context, closer to the world of satire than to that of narrative literature.
