Paul Lake is an English and creative writing professor at Arkansas Tech University and the poetry editor of First Things. He is the author of Among the Immortals, Another Kind of Travel, and Walking Backward. He lives in Russellville, Arkansas.
The animals of Green Pastures Farm pride themselves on their domestication and their ability to protect their home and families from the wild animals that live beyond their fence. A sign posted throughout the farm, left from the days before their human master passed away, provides their most sacred commandment: NO TRESPASSING.
That is, until an injured doe arrives on the farm and, ignoring their own laws, the animals allow her to stay. This choice is just the first of many as the animals are confronted by a series of difficult decisions that gradually loosen their grip on the farm and threaten their lives.
Cry Wolf is an Animal Farm for the 21st century: an allegory of the political challenges we face in post-9/11 America. The farm animals' struggle to maintain their way of life against an influx of change is a powerful commentary on the importance of balancing freedom with justice and on how easily even the best of intentions can destroy a community too caught up with what is "fair" to do what is right.
