Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats; Eliot review

Personally, I love this book of poetry. Not only do I love T. S. Eliot as a poet, but I love cats, so it's a good combination.

It's a short little book about various cats and their walks of life, and it makes social commentary in a non-threatening way (it also features drawings by Edward Gorey! And yes, I have no idea who that is).

Noteworthy, while on this subject, is the fact that the musical Cats was based off this book of poetry.

I liked it, but not as much as T. S. Eliot's other works. It's good, to be sure, but it is nowhere near perfect.
