Pivi and Kabo


Andrew Lang (1844 – 1912) was a Scots poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. The Andrew Lang lectures at the University of St Andrews are named after him. Lang was also a prolific author of works both fiction and non; he wrote his own fairy tales such as Prince Prigio (1889) and Prince Ricardo of Pantouflia (1893), and wrote numerous historical texts. Andrew Lang was great friends with Robert Louis Stevenson and H. Rider Haggard, with whom he wrote The World's Desire (1890). Preferring romance over realism, he admired their works as well as those of Alexandre Dumas Père, Henry Fielding, William Makepeace Thackeray, fellow Scot Robert Burns and many others. One of the shortest stories by Andrey Lang describes the life of birds and people living in an island far away, called New Claledonia. Two birds, at the same time two friends were living on that far island. One day Pivi and Kabo, so called these birds, started practice in playing sling as all people of the island do. Unfortunately during the game Kabo wounded Kivi with a stone of his sling the last fell into the river. Kivi stayed alive but what this little susceptible bird had to overcome you will know at the end.
