John Ower- "Aesop" and the Ambiguity of Clifford Simak's City (2122 words)
Simak's abrupt shift from the cobbly to barely civilized terrestrial carnivores links the outworld predator with the "Blood hunger" that the dogs are striving to eliminate from earth.
Simak is now implying that the greatest threat to the benevolent plans of the dogs comes from man, who combines the killer instinct of the predatory beast with a powerful, mechanically inventive intelligence.
Rather, Simak appears to be synthesizing both views in the perception that it is the savage hatred and anger within Peter which fuels the inspirational courage necessary to overcome his enemy.
