Dr Elizabeth Wager's The Poetic Mews: cats and their poets is a fantastic collection of feline poems. Stylish and witty – they are infused with both historical scholarship and a breathtaking mastery of poetry.
The task of The Poetic Mews is to tell the story of some of history's literary giants through their cats, written in their own singular literary style. The resulting collection of 20 beautiful and highly entertaining poems takes us on a historical romp from Beowulf via Shakespeare and Milton to Ogden Nash.
If Ogden had a cat
Rhymes for tabby
Tend to be flabby
But verses on tortoiseshell
If you love history, poetry and/or cats, you'll love these poems and the delightful illustrations by artist Gloria Cavicchioli – or it makes a lovely gift for cat lovers in your life.
Elizabeth has kindly donated proceeds from the sale of the book to International Cat Care.
"...the history of the world can be seen through literature. And how better to view history than through the eyes of cats?"
