Oh, isn't that interesting! I didn't know about the raven. Well, it makes sense! The raven saw land and said, "Later, Noah!" while the pigeon returned to roost.
Have you ever heard of the novel, Not Wanted on the Voyage? It's by the brilliant late Canadian author Timothy Findlay, and its his fantastical and very dark retelling of the Noah story. It is a book about the violence of patriarchy. Noah, mad with fervour, saves his family from the flood, but then becomes a despotic instrument of God who, unbeknownst to Noah, actually dies in the early pages of the novel. I've never really read a book like it, in the way that it marries genres.

I never heard of that novel, but it sounds fascinating.
