Jessica Swaim re-envisions classic literature through a roundup of cultured hounds including Rover Frost, Emily Doginson, and Edgar Allan Pug. Poems range from the savory 'Shall I Compare Thee to a Steak Fillet,' to the reflective 'Sizing Up Shoes on a Soulful Evening' and the mysterious 'The Maven,' each with a cunning twist that will leave you grinning. The poets are also brought to life with distinguished portraits by Chet Phillips and insightful biographies.
