Dog Poems

An Anthology

March 2021

Territory Rights — Worldwide including Canada, but excluding the British Commonwealth.

Various (Author), Christopher Wait (Editor)

Description

This handsome gift edition will appeal to anyone who is a dog lover, or a poet, or a poetry lover: in short, just about anyone

Our canine companions offer us friendship, love, understanding, all unadulterated. They are our joyful playmates and our furry shoulders to cry on, from the cradle to the grave.
       This book brings together some of the finest poems on dogs by a range of poets from Diogenes to Dorothy Parker, from Chaucer to Clarice Lispector. Gertrude Stein once said, “I am I because my little dog knows me,” and this collection proves it: with their wit, their wisdom, and their delights, these poems—and the dogs that inspired them—hold up a mirror to our better selves. 
       Whether exploding with the joy of a new puppy or mourning the loss of a tender lifelong friend, growling a critique at the more “civilized” habits of humans or simply spending a day in the life of a favorite pet, these poems offer something to dog lovers, poets, and poetry readers: in short, just about everyone.
