Two anthologies to delight cat lovers everywhere, exploring the ever-fascinating, ever-mystifying feline.

The Great Cat

Edited by Emily Fragos

The cat has inspired poetic adoration since the days of the pharaohs, and the poems collected here cover an astonishing range of periods, cultures, and styles. Here are Yeats's Minnaloushe, Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat, T. S. Eliot's Rum Tum Tugger, William Blake's tiger, Rilke's panther, the cats of Mother Goose and Dr. Seuss, and more. Read tributes from Sufi mystics, medieval Chinese poets, and haiku masters of imperial Japan, from Chaucer, Shelley, Borges, Neruda, Dickinson, and Shakespeare.

Cat Stories

Edited by Diana Secker Tesdell

This book covers two centuries of literary homages to the fascinating feline, in stories by writers of every stripe. Read about Italo Calvino's secret city of cats and Ursula K. Le Guin's mind-twisting Schrdinger's cat. Alice Adams and Maeve Brennan explore how much cats can mean to their humans. In all their guises, cats take center stage in many-faceted tales by writers from P.G. Wodehouse to Doris Lessing, from Damon Runyon to Steven Millhauser, and many more.
