The prosaic Dog

No doubt about it, the dog is man’s best friend – loyal, thick-skinned, playful and funny at the same time. For this book Rotraut Susanne Berner has assembled a rogue’s gallery of dog portraits to accompany well-known and less well-known texts by the likes of Ernst Jandl, Christa Reinig, Christian Morgenstern, Max Kruse, Valerie Worth, and many others.

For us humans a dog is a somewhat prosaic creature, evoking rather stolid emotions, as opposed, say, to cats, some of whom have been the subject of romantic ramblings. There are novels about dogs, and nice bits of prose, but poems are few and far between, more’s the pity. What few there are, though, are that much more to be prized. Armin Abmeier has turned up a few that are quite beautiful.

A great gift for any dog lover.
