A blessed companion is a booka book that, fitly chosen, is a lifelong friend. Douglas William Jerrold Much reading is like much eating, wholly useless without digestion. Robert SouthIf I had read as much as other men, I should have been as ignorant as they. Thomas Hobbes Can books corrupt? Do badly written books sharpen or dull the minds of their readers? Ought we to take seriously the old saw that excessive reading can damage one?s sight?The Book Lovers' Anthology offers answers to these questions and many more with a remarkable collection of reflections on the bookby the writers whose books are among the world?s best known and best loved. Throughout the centuries, books have been a source of fascinationand sometimes frustrationfor writers. Between the covers of theAnthology are excerpts from the novels of Jane Austen, George Eliot, and Jonathan Swift, among many others, all of whom paused in their fiction to extol the virtues of the written page. Those who are taken with the smell of books will find a like mind in Charles Dickens, who waxed poetic about the pleasant smell of paper freshly pressed. Very avid readers might even nod in knowing agreement with John Donne, who declared, I shall die reading. Other poets whose musings on libraries or books are excerpted for the Anthology include Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Milton, and Chaucer. These writings are interspersed by the meditations of essayists and diaristsamong them, Samuel Johnson, James Boswell, John Ruskin, and Michel de Montaigneof centuries past. With contributions from major writers across ages and genres, this is an essential anthology for which any bibliophile will want to find space on the shelf.
And as soon as he’s at home, then he’d like to get about. He likes to lie in the bureau drawer,. But he makes such a fuss if he can’t get out. The cat from John Keats’s Sonnet to a Cat. who hast pass’d thy grand cliacteric,. How many mice and rats hast in thy days. – How many tit bits stolen. Thy latent talons in me – and upraise. Thy gentle mew – and tell me all thy frays. Of fish and mice, and rats and tender chick. Nay, look not down, nor lick thy dainty wrists –. For all the wheezy asthma, – and for all. Thy tail’s tip is nick’d off – and though the fists. Of many a maid have given thee many a mail,. In youth thou enter’dst on glass bottled wall. Samuel Johnson’s cat, Hodge: a non-fictional literary cat. I never shall forget the indulgence with which he treated Hodge, his cat: for whom he himself used to go out and buy oysters, lest the servants having that trouble should take a dislike to the poor creature. I am, unluckily, one of those who have an antipathy to a cat, so that I am uneasy when in the room with one. and I own, I frequently suffered a good deal from the presence of this same Hodge. I recollect him one day scrambling up Dr. Johnson’s breast, apparently with much satisfaction, while my friend smiling and half-whistling, rubbed down his back, and pulled him by the tail. and when I observed he was a fine cat, saying, ‘Why yes, Sir, but I have had cats whom I liked better than this. ’ and then as if perceiving Hodge to be out of countenance, adding, ‘but he is a very fine cat, a very fine cat indeed. James Boswell The Life of Johnson. The white kitten from Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass. ‘One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it:—it was the black kitten’s fault entirely. For the white kitten had been having its face washed by the old cat for the last quarter of an hour (and bearing it pretty well, considering). so you see that it couldn’t have had any hand in the mischief. Pangur B I and Pangur Ban my cat,. ‘Tis a like task we are at:. Hunting mice is his delight,. Hunting words I sit all night. When a mouse darts from its den,. O how glad is Pangur then. O what gladness do I prove. When I solve the doubts I love. So in peace our task we ply,. Pangur Ban, my cat, and I. In our arts we find our bliss,. Jeoffry, in Christopher Smart’s Jubilate Agno. For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry. For he is the servant of the Living God, duly and daily serving him. For at the first glance of the glory of God in the East he worships in his way. For is this done by wreathing his body seven times round with elegant quickness. For then he leaps up to catch the musk, which is the blessing of God upon his prayer. For he rolls upon prank to work it in. For having done duty and received blessing he begins to consider himself. For first he looks upon his forepaws to see if they are clean. For thirdly he works it upon stretch with the forepaws extended. For fifthly he washes himself. For sixthly he rolls upon wash. For eighthly he rubs himself against a post. For ninthly he looks up for his instructions. For having considered God and himself he will consider his neighbor. For if he meets another cat he will kiss her in kindness. For when he takes his prey he plays with it to give it a chance. For one mouse in seven escapes by his dallying. For when his day’s work is done his business more properly begins. For he keeps the Lord’s watch in the night against the adversary. For he counteracts the powers of darkness by his electrical skin and glaring eyes. For he counteracts the Devil, who is death, by brisking about the life. For in his morning orisons he loves the sun and the sun loves him.
