    • Hi Armaghan.
      Literally, altar means a raised ceremonial structure like a table to perform some religious ceremonies, especially in Christianity. However, here in this context, altar figuratively means the raven’s main business and perhaps his family. In other words, he said farewell to all his belongings and set off for the designated pools and lakes.

    • Precisely, this is the central theme of this short story. We’re not supposed to close our eyes to our genuine essence, striving to emulate or copy others blindly. Instead, we need to flourish our innate potentials, and get inspired by others as well.
