About the Author:

MAURICE CRAIG, architectural historian, poet and biographer, is the author of Mausolea Hibernica, The Elephant and the Polish Question, Classic Irish Houses of the Middle Size and Dublin 1660-1860, among other books, and editor of W.S. Landor: One Hundred Poems.

Review:

'Whether it is their caressibility, their demonstrably close kinship with the most magnificent predators in the world, their flexibility both moral and physical, their aesthetic sense of disposing themselves in attitudes fit to drive a sculptor to despair, their ability to come and go in utter silence, their courage when cornered, their nice judgment in knowing when to turn and flee - all these things have inspired poets to feel privileged in sharing this fragile planet with enigmatic creatures who know so much that we do not.' - from the Introduction
