Another previously unseen Eliot poem emerges | 03-Nov-15

In Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, TS Eliot gave us Macavity, Mr Mistoffelees, and the Rum Tum Tugger. Now it turns out that he also dreamed up a Gourmet Cat, in Cumberleylaude, the feline star of a previously unpublished cat poem who has a taste for "salmon, duck, or expensive French wines".

The poem appeared for the first time in this week's Sunday Times and will also be part of a new  Faber and Faber edition of Eliot's writings out this week. Read more on The Guardian's website.
