Abstract

The potential and intrinsic polysemy of the esopic fable made a very flexible means of lively expression over the centuries, as evidenced by the fortune it enjoyed in the traditions of many countries: so was in the literature of the southern Slavs, full of evidences the book tries to bring to light. Bearing multiple messages and meanings, a banner of other literary genres, the classical fable lived an unusual flourishing in the eighteenth century, thanks to its versatility and its didactic-didascalic functions. From the categories of the classical tradition Obradović fable comes out revived and renewed: its centrality, in the author's production, is gathered by the youth writings in which few and essential features already highlight all the didactic and illustrative potentialities: the Basne collection becomes the privileged means of entrusting the message and communicating with a wide audience, a space in which the author can disclose himself to the ideas of the Age of the Enlightenment.
