I happen to recall a poem by DH Lawrence where the poet mistook Swallows flying in the twilight air at dusk. To his chagrin, these little flying creatures were actually bats, which he considers vindictive and disparaging. It’s not just the author who envies these flying mammals. Even in popular culture, bats have always been associated with evil.
