The Great Cat: Poems About Cats
The Great Cat is a delightful tribute to the ever-mystifying cat, culled from poetic adoration rooted in an astonishing range of eras, cultures, and styles. The feline has been an object of attention from the time of pharaohs, inspiring literary artists across the continents and centuries to describe the feline family doing what it does best: napping, pacing, prowling, purring, sleeping a bit more, and looking disdainfully upon lesser creatures like ourselves. This delightful anthology presents Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat, T.S. Eliot's Rum Tum Tugger, William Blake's tyger, and Rilke's panther; tributes from Sufi mystics, medieval Chinese poets, and haiku masters of imperial Japan; poems from Shelley, Dickinson, Chaucer, and Shakespeare; the cats you were raised to adore, from Mother Goose to Dr. Seuss. The Great Cat will be treasured by cat lovers across the globe, for its unmatched celebration of the beauty, the intrigue, the elegance, the grace, and the upmost superiority of the cat.
