The Owl & the Cragrat

Illustrated by Duncan Bourne

£5.95

Paperback 160 pages (11 March, 2004) ISBN 0-9547107-0-3

The Owl & the Cragrat is an anthology of classic poems of English
Literature specially 'adapted' for climbers and mountaineers.
Skilfully and lovingly crafted by climbing writers, these acts of
'creative plagiarism' encompass many dimensions of the climbing
experience - including fear, camaraderie, gear-worship,
bouldering and death. The poems range from the wickedly
humorous and slyly subversive to the achingly poignant and
mysteriously atmospheric. Had W.B. Yeats, Shakespeare,
Shelley, T.S. Eliot et al ever climbed, this is what they might have
written. Wonderfully illustrated with 18 original drawings by Duncan Bourne, this is a 'must' for every literature-loving climber or mountaineer - indeed, for anyone who enjoys poetry.
