The pleasure of dappled things, the beauty of adaptation to purpose, the glory of extravagance, classic elegance or romantic nonsense and grotesquerie - all these we get from the Zoo.In 1938 Louis MacNeice published his second collection of poems with Faber- his personal essay Modern Poetry for OUP- and Zoo, a prose commission from Michael Joseph to write an impressionistic guide to the London Zoo in Regents Park. Envisioned as a breezy assignment MacNeices Zoo inevitably became a richer endeavour, taking in side-trips to Paris and Belfast.

Zoo also benefited from illustrations by the painter Nancy Sharp, with whom MacNeice had begun an affair after moving to London in 1936.This Faber Finds edition returns to circulation a delightful rarity by one of the twentieth centurys most brilliant poets.
