It has been adapted throughout the ages. Aesop was a legendary Greek fabulist (620–560 BC). He was a reputed creator of numerous short tales about animals, all of these illustrated human virtues and failings (World Encyclopedia). The french poet and man of letters Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695) was one of the great French classical authors. He preferred to work in relatively minor and unexploited genres, such as the fable and the verse tale (Encyclopedia of World Biography). The Ant and the Grasshopper was published in 1867, in Greece.

    What separated the Ant from the Grasshopper was the Ant’s refusal to live in the now. Its animalistic nature to survive compelled the Ant to work diligently to store a supply of nourishment for the winter season again. On the other hand, the Grasshopper enjoyed feeling “alive” (Conklin, 2010, p. 60) and conducted himself in a recreational manner, though he witnessed the Ant’s effort to labor for its future. “Why bother about winter?” said the Grasshopper; “we have got plenty of food at present”…

Each poem suggests a very different impression of the cockroach: Morley's is a sweet, innocent child, while Wild's is dangerous, unwanted predator. The ideas between these poems are fairly similar however, the…

He'd nod when it was safe for me to start the engine then he'd park on the dirt next to the ramp. I was proud that I knew how to drive the boat even though it was just to the dock. He'd hop in, sit at the steering wheel, and we'd be on our way. Usually we'd get to a spot and he'd turn…
