Description:

Upon first reading, Margaret Craven's "I Heard the Owl Call My Name" may seem to be a depressing book. In large part, this is due to the fact that the theme of death pervades the novel, dominating much of the action and the thoughts of the main characters. However, this paper will argue that such a reading would, in fact, be superficial. Rather than depressing, Craven's novel may be seen as an insightful coming to terms with the reality of death as a natural and integral part of life. In this context, the book becomes a profound reflection on the nature of humanity and our experience of the world.
