BOOK II

" We shall never permit that."
" First, then, apparently, we must have a censorship of the writers of fiction, and whatever good fable they compose we must accept, but the bad we must reject. And those which are chosen we shall instruct the nurses and mothers to tell to their children, and to mould their minds with the stories much more than they now shape their bodies with their hands;(19)' but the most of those which they now tell we must throw out."
" Of which are you speaking?" he asked.
" If," I said, "we shall decide upon the larger compositions of this class, we shall thereby judge also of the less. For the greater and the less must be constructed upon the same model, and should produce the same effect. Don't you think so?"
" I do, indeed," he said; " but I fail to understand which you mean by the greater."
" The tales," I said, " which Homer and Hesiod told us, and the other poets as well. For these, I think, were, and they continue to be, the tellers of false stories to mankind."
" Which stories do you mean," he said; " and what do you find in them to censure? "

19. Jowett and Campbell cite from Plutarch's Discourse on the Training of Children an interesting parallel to these words: "For as it is needful that the members of children be shaped aright as soon as they are born, that they may not afterwards prove crooked and distorted, so it is no less expedient that their manners be well fashioned from the very beginning." Plutarch's Morals, vol. I, p. 8, Goodwin's edition.
