The Fables in Castilian verse for the use of the Royal Basque Seminary were written by Félix María Samaniego. They were used as lectures for the students of the Seminario Patriótico Vascongado, in Vergara. In 1781 the first five books were published in Valencia under the title Fábulas en verso castellano and in 1784 they appeared in Madrid in their definitive version: nine books with 157 fables.
These fables are inspired by the works of the classical fabulists Aesop and Phaedrus, the Frenchman Jean de La Fontaine and the Englishman John Gay. They have a didactic purpose. His style is simple.
Samaniego fell out with Tomás de Iriarte -who had been his friend- when the latter published his own fables. It happened a year after theirs. However, Iriarte stated that they were “the first original fables in the Spanish language”.

Reference edition: Valencia, Benito Monfort, 1781.
