Rachel Schwarz ENG 112-NF 29 March 2011 Chapters 1-6 The Book of the Dun Cow by Walter Wangerin Jr. is unique in its plotline and character development. The novel presents farm animals that communicate with human speech. The society of animals is based upon a medieval feudal system, with an apparent Christian overtone. It is stated that the tale is set in a time when, “…the earth was still fixed in the absolute center of the universe…And the sun still traveled around the moored earth,” (22). Wangerin writes that the animals were “the watchers,” instated by God to protect innocent life from Wrym, an evil serpant confined in earth’s center. Chauntacleer the Rooster, keeper of the Coop, exists as an early hero. However, Chauntacleer emerges as less than laudable and courageous. Chauntacleer is arrogant, vain, short-tempered. Yet, Chauntacleer is an impressive ruler, as his subjects address him as “Lord.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
