A slave runs away from his master and hides in the woods — then finds himself face to face with a limping lion…. The tale of Androcles and the Lion is said to have been written by Aesop — the great Greek storyteller who always summed up his stories from the animal kingdom with a moral. It happened in ancient times that a slave named Androcles escaped from his master and fled into the forest, and he wandered there for a long time until he was weary. Just then he heard a lion near him moaning and groaning and at times roaring terribly. Instead of attacking him it kept on moaning and groaning and looking at Androcles, who saw that the lion was holding out his right paw, which was covered with blood and very much swollen.
Androcles and the Lion is a play written by George Bernard Shaw. The play is Shaw's retelling of the tale of Androcles , a slave who is saved by the requiting mercy of a lion. In the play, Shaw portrays Androcles to be one of the many Christians being led to the Colosseum for torture. Characters in the play exemplify several themes and takes on both modern and supposed early Christianity, including the cultural clash between Jesus' teachings and traditional Roman values. Androcles , a fugitive Christian tailor, accompanied by his nagging wife, is on the run from his Roman persecutors.
