Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird Wallace Stevens. I Among twenty snowy mountains, The only moving thing Was the eye of the blackbird. II I was of three minds, Like a tree In which there are three blackbirds. III The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds. Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird By Wallace Stevens About this Poet Wallace Stevens is one of America’s most respected 20th century poets. He was a master stylist, employing an extraordinary vocabulary and a rigorous precision in crafting his poems. But he was also a philosopher of aesthetics, vigorously exploring the notion of poetry. And you know since it’s narrated by an animal, it’s narrated by a crow named S.T. There aren’t many books, especially adult books, narrated by animals. I think I could think of so many books for children narrated by animals. But I feel like oftentimes adult fiction thinks that, “Oh, that’s too childish or whatever it doesn’t work.”. Gifts of the Crow: How Perception, Emotion, and Thought Allow Smart Birds to Behave Like Humans by John Marzluff Ph.D. and Tony Angell | Feb 5, out of 5 stars
“Every significant novel is an act of reckless originality. Colum McCann’s Apeirogon is nothing like any book you’ve ever read. Think of reading David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas, Anne Carson’s Autobiography of Red, or George Saunders’s Lincoln in the Bardo for the first time. Think of discovering an entirely unprecedented, and profoundly true, narrative form. Crow Planet it a book best characterized by Haupt’s journey to find curiosity and loveliness in an increasingly urban landscape where the natural world can feel further and further away. Crows therefore, offered the perfect vehicle for looking at and appreciating what remains when the forests retreat and box stores and neighborhoods take. Emmett Louis Till (J – Aug ) was a year-old African American who was lynched in Mississippi in , after being accused of offending a white woman in her family's grocery store. The brutality of his murder and the fact that his killers were acquitted drew attention to the long history of violent persecution of African Americans in the United States. The Crow's Tale is written and illustrated by the very talented Naomi Howarth. It is published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books, ISBN The story is based on The Rainbow Crow which is a traditional Pennsylvania Lenni Lenape Indian legend about transformation. As the author says, this is a story about bravery, perseverance.

The crow(3 weeks now)was in their ICU,and is recovering steadily, and about to go into next stage, in outside enclosure to strengthen his wings. Next step, released within 10 mile radius of capture. Makes me smile. His mate still hanging near looking . Hopping excitedly from side to side over the pheasants was a crow. He was so like a referee working a boxing match, I had to laugh. Finally one pheasant dominated and the other ran away. The crow flew to a nearby tree, and from the top most branch cawed the news for at least five minutes.
