About the Author

A masterpiece of Persian literature in its most elaborate style, it was written in Sanskrit over 2500 years ago and translated from Sanskrit to Pahlavi to Arabic and, finally in 1144 C.E. to Persian which is the basis of this English translation. The names Kalilah and Dimnah are the names of two jackals who are advisors to the lion king. It is also believed that these stories formed the basis for Aesop's Fables.
