Abstract: "The Humane Society: A Fable" Is the fanciful existential saga of a chicken named Charlie who is taught to read by an idealistic young woman named Niniane, an ardent vegan and animal rights advocate. Hopelessly in love with his human protectress, Charlie sublimates his passion by concieving a desire to be baptized into the Roman Catholic Church, thus setting in motion a course of events that leads to inevitable rejection by that ecclesiatical body.
