We all love animals, even if sometimes its only from afar on TV or at a zoo. But many of us have felt a closer friendship and companionship with our friends in the animal world. We talk and react to them as if they really do understand us. Perhaps they do. In this volume Hardy, Thackeray, Carroll, DH Lawrence, Emily Dickinson, and many others share their words with our ears. The selections are:

  • 'Animal Poems - An Introduction
  • 'The Ant and The Cricket - Anonymous
  • 'Choosing Their Names' - Thomas Hood
  • 'White Butterflies' - Algernon Charles Swinburne

    " So melancholy! I'm glad this was only a selection instead of the complete works. I like Hardy, but after a while he is just depressing. "
