Interactions between humans and animals are extremely common in ancient literary works. Countless famous epics have drawn upon the interactions of humans with some aspect of the natural world. Most commonly, humans have been shown to interact with animals in antiquity to help give them clues of the task that they need to complete. These animals can be anything from a common hawk grazing the sky to a God of Olympus that has taken the form of a heron to signal warriors. In The Iliad specifically, birds play an interesting role as a medium between the world of humans and the world of the divine Gods.
The speaker’s attention returns to the present and finds the flock of starlings “merely huge,” nothing more than a group of birds. However, the biblical allusion to Lot’s wife reminds the speaker the importance of mindful watching. Lot’s wife had looked around not thinking and turned into stone, forcing the speaker’s gaze back onto the grass, which was “so evenly tinted.” Moreover, he notes the thick outline created by the idle ink stain of starlings on the bright green course. One of the birds decides to fly off, as did the rest, which paralleled the flock to a billowy lady’s scarf, the image that lifts the speaker’s
Flannery O’Connor’s The King of the Birds is a narrative explaining the narrator’s obsession with different kinds of fowl over time. The reader follows the narrator from her first experience with a chicken, which caught the attention of reporters due to its ability to walk both backward and forward, to her collection of peahens and peacocks. At the mere age of five, the narrator’s chicken was featured in the news and from that moment she began to build her family of fowl.

The way an animal lives, or sees the world greatly shapes their characteristics and behavior, setting the precise actions of a Hawk apart from the unfocused motions of a golden retriever. In the poems “Hawk Roosting” by Ted Hughes and “Golden Retrievals” by Mark Doty, the language, and point of view techniques used convey these contrasting characteristics and perspectives. The narrator of “Hawk Roosting” begins the 13 sentence poem by highlighting its own characteristics revealing the nature of the author. The term “hooked head and hooked feet” tell the reader that the literal interpretation of the narrators identity is that of a bird, more specifically a hawk, The metaphorical definition of this creatures nature is brought to light through the diction used through out the passage.
There are many others that are worshiped by Indians. Thunderbird is one of the most powerful animal, and it had battles with some other creatures. In the myth of Lakota tribe, there isn’t only one Thunderbird, but four of them.

Oftentimes, birds are used to create false hope. As the play opens, Duncan asks an injured captain about Macbeth’s battle with the rebel Macdonwald, to which the captain responds that Macbeth was as scared by the enemy “[a]s sparrows eagles, or the hare the lion” (I.2.35).
As stated previously, some beings were spared, and in both tales, these passengers (of humankind) were mainly family or (of animal-kind) were wildlife comprised of each species. Nearing their redemption, both passengers used birds to test for land that eventually ended in the arks possessing the landing spot of a mountain. Finally, after a peaceful landing, both flood accounts tell the story a character that made a sacrifice and that character receiving some blessing afterwards. Throughout these similarities, though, there are also some differences that make for great

No one ever would have imagined that a killer whale would want love and companionship from humans, because of the huge differences in both. This story opened my eyes and point of view on how all animals no matter big or small experience feelings and emotions like people. There have been several studies in history that demonstrated and show the evidence that animals go thru a lot of feelings we the people tent to go thru. According to a studied and report by Jonathan Balcombe “following the death of an infant, baboon mothers show physiological and behavioral responses that mirror those of bereft women. Glucocorticoid hormones — associated with grief in humans — rise and take a month to subside again, and the bereaved mother monkey seeks therapy by expanding her social network through increased grooming interactions with other baboons.(J.Balcombe
