9780712357470: The Cat and the Moon and Other Cat Poems

"A dog is prose; a cat is a poem." —Jean Burden

Cats have fascinated, amused, infuriated, and inspired writers for thousands of years. This magnificently varied anthology, including poems by Emily Dickinson, Walter de la Mare, Oscar Wilde, and Thomas Hardy, features fluffy kittens and belligerent toms, moggies snoozing by the fire, and feral tormentors of mice and birds. Gracefully aging fighters dream of past glories; a hungry cat in wartime works her wiles; tragedy strikes in a tub of goldfish; memories of lost friends are cherished; and Yeats' mysterious Black Minnaloushe turns his long, lingering gaze on the Moon. Drawing on poems from more than five centuries, The Cat And the Moon celebrates the diverse moods and qualities of these most intriguing creatures.
