Le Corbeau et le Renard” is a fable written by Jean de La Fontaine, a French poet and fabulist, in the 17th century. The fable tells the story of a clever fox who tries to trick a crow into giving up a piece of cheese it is holding in its beak.
In the fable, the crow is perched on a tree branch, holding a piece of cheese in its beak. The fox, seeing the crow with the cheese, decides to try to get the cheese for himself. The fox begins to flatter the crow, telling it how beautiful and majestic it is, and asking it to sing. The crow, flattered by the fox’s compliments, opens its beak to sing, dropping the cheese in the process. The fox quickly grabs the cheese and runs away, leaving the crow to realize that it has been tricked.
The moral of the fable is that flattery can be a trap and that one should be careful not to be deceived by it. It is one of La Fontaine’s most famous fables and is often taught to children in France and other French-speaking countries as an example of the importance of being wary of flattery and staying true to oneself.
