"Lessing's Fables" tells the story of a playwright Lessing. He has written "Miss Sarah Samson", "Aimiliya · Jialuo Di", "Mina von Heim Bath " and "Nathan der Weise " and other plays. He whips violently oppressive feudal autocratic rule in these plays and enthusiastically advocated the idea of bourgeois humanism. These script have several profound ideological content and valuable artistic value and become the world's theater treasures and still been on the stage and screen continuously untill today. Lessing also wrote the "Hamburg Drama" and "Laocoon" and other well-known works of aesthetic that have done a wonderful exposition in dramatic realism theory and the difference between the shape and boundaries of art and poetry art respectively. Today, these two books have become classics of Western European classical literary theory and aesthetics. Lessing, not like ancient Greek Aesop, La Fontaine, France and others, is not a writer specializing in writing fables. Allegory does not occupy any special status in his creative activity. However, he not only wrote three volumes of poetry and some prose fable, but also, as an outstanding literary theorist, made a detailed and in-depth research on this literary genre of fables.
