Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An engaging collection of humorous poems. These verses, originally composed to amuse Eliots intimate friends, have proven irresistible to cat lovers, lovers of nonsense, and admirers of Eliot throughout the English-speaking world. “Enough ferocious fancy and parody to knock the spots off most cat books and most...verses” (Time). Drawings by Nicolas Bentley.

Synopsis:

Eliots famous collection of nonsense verse about cats-the inspiration for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats. This edition features pen-and-ink drolleries by Edward Gorey throughout.
