9780006384397: Pig Poets

A pig's life is short and its experience somewhat limited. But when it comes to food our porcine friend is not quite so mute as one might suppose. In this witty and eccentric collection of poems parodying famous verse, the literate and erudite among our grunting sophisticates impart their pigly wisdom, teaching both human and young piglings alike something of what it means to be a pig. Line art throughout.

From the Back Cover:

A CRACKLING GOOD READ!

'Snuffle ye truffles while ye can
Old Time is still a flying,
And somewhere surely hangs the pan
That bits of ye will fry in.'
ROBERT HEDGEPIG

Complete with explanatory notes, and penned by the likes of Gerard Pigling Hogskin, Robert Louis Saddleback, William Porker Yeats, Alfred Lord Tendertum, Sir Walter Scoff and Percy Bygge Belley, this uniquely entertaining volume will amaze and amuse even the most rashernal of pig-lovers.

A pig's life is short and its experience somewhat limited. But when it comes to food our porcine friend is not so mute as one might suppose. From a madrigal by William Wobblebottom to Sir John Suckling's 'Encouragement to a Pigling', the literate and erudite among our grunting sophisticates pour forth their spiritual effusions and wealth of wisdom, teaching both us and young piglings alike something of what it means to be a pig.

Henry Hogge is the pig name of a Devon based poet and pig-lover. 'The Pig Poets' is the culmination of a lifetime's study of poetry and pigs.
