Hi Prime123,

There are some proper examples concerning the matter in question.

The novel, which might be regarded as " an infinitely enhanced Aesopian fable ", with poetry in strict subordination to rationality:

The Apple Cart by George Bernard Shaw The play is a fable, of an England ruled over by King Magnus.

Ben E. Perry, one of the foremost authorities on Aesopic fable, argued for the second possibility in his book Babrius and Phaedrus.

Regards.

V.
