T. S. Eliot
Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
London: Faber and Faber, 1948.
First edition, ninth impression.
One of the most charming collections, this is Eliot at his most playful, demonstrating a delightful mastery of language, a kind of love-song to everything he relished in England, through the metaphor of cats.
