‘Château dIf from The Count of Monte Cristo’ is an avian ode. In his distinct emotional prose, son of Charles Blackman, Auguste Blackman pictures a bird in a cage. There is an elegance to this image, as well as an evocation of freedom.
On birds, Blackman muses: “all the plants, flowers, trees, places she has been. Conversation she has had. Songs she has sung. Babies she has made.” He urges us to not let this be her swansong, but rather a call to care for the environment.
For collectors of Blackman, neo-expressionist art and bird lovers set ‘Château dIf from The Count of Monte Cristo’ free.
