Peacock Fables Number Two
No Thumbnail Available
Here is another sixteen-page pamphlet with stiff-paper covers and a string-tied binding, following upon Peacock Fables Number One a year earlier. It presents Black Bird/Grey Bird. The former drops a big, hard crust intro a fountain. The latter claims it, saying mine repeatedly. When he flies upward with it, a large part of the crust breaks off and falls back into the fountain. Then the black bird claims -- or better reclaims -- this fragment. False claim defeats itself. The story is set in verse. No illustrations. I would say that this story is one degree stronger than the story in the first booklet.
