Jeoffry: The Poet’s Cat – A Biography

Oliver Soden

A biography of that most feline and superb of all creatures, Jeoffry, imortalised by Christopher Smart in his glorious mid-C18th paean. Charming, witty, profound, this is a marvellous biography of the poet and his world, as well of his companion, the “compleat cat”: tenacious, grave, wreathing, spraggling… Oliver Soden’s previous book was a much-praised biography of Michael Tippett (2019).
