 《莱辛寓言》讲述了莱辛是个剧作家。他先后写了《萨拉·萨姆逊小姐》、《爱米丽雅·嘉洛蒂》、《米娜·封·巴恩海姆》以及《智者那旦》等剧作。他在这些剧作中猛烈地鞭挞暴虐的封建专制统治,热情地鼓吹了资产阶级人道主义的思想。这几个剧本有着深刻的思想内容和宝贵的艺术价值,成为世界戏剧中的珍品,直到今天仍不断被搬上舞台和银幕。

  莱辛还写了《汉堡剧评》和《拉奥孔》等著名的美学著作,分别对戏剧的现实主义理论、对造型艺术与诗歌艺术的区别和界限做了精彩的阐述。今天,这两部书都已成为西欧古典文艺理论和美学的经典著作了。

  莱辛并不像古希腊的伊索、法国的拉封丹等人,他不是一个专门从事寓言写作的作家。寓言在他的创作活动中不占有什么特殊的地位。但是,他不仅写了三卷散文寓言和一些诗体寓言,而且作为一个杰出的文艺理论家,还对寓言这一文学体裁作了详细而深入的研究。

Mama, I know what you are wishing for," Lydia had said with a rueful sigh. "You want all of your children to find true love, as you and Papa have. " Long accustomed to her daughter's habit of translating everything into numbers, Sara had smiled. " "I started with the number of eligible men in England, and estimated how many of them might be appropriate for me in terms of age, health, and so forth. Then I assessed the number of possible outcomes to meeting each one of them, by observing a random sampling of our married acquaintances.

In my opinion, Lydia is wise to choose prime goods like Wray, rather than wait until the best picks are all gone. " "Oh, good Lord," Sara exclaimed with a strangled laugh. "Between you and Lydia, I don't know who is more exasperating. What about hope, and romance, and magic? " Reaching over the edge of the tub, she played with the dark hair revealed by the open neck of his shirt. " Sliding his hand behind her neck, Derek urged her face closer to his. " Her breath hitched with a laugh. " His mouth glided to the soft hollow behind her ear, while his fingertips roamed over her wet shoulders.

Which Dr. Linley? " "The son," Wray replied with a grimace. "Damn, I didn't mean to let that slip out. " She scowled at the discovery. "When did Linley advise you not to propose, and what were his reasons? " "Lydia, hush," Wray counseled softly. "Someone will hear. It was nothing, just a brief conversation we had before I approached your father to ask for your hand. " As Lydia struggled to control her temper, she felt a wash of color sliding over her face and throat. " Annoyance nearly suffocated her.
