Illustrator Kate Feiffer at Edgartown Books

December 17, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join Kate Feiffer, Vineyard-based illustrator of The Lamb Cycle: What the Great English Poets Would Have Written About Mary and Her Lamb (Had They Thought of It First), for a book signing at the Vineyard’s own Edgartown Books. The signing will take place Sunday, December 17th from 2:00 – 4:00pm.

What if “Mary Had a Little Lamb” had been written by Lord Byron, William Shakespeare, John Keats, Robert Browning or Emily Brontë? In “The Lamb Cycle,” David Ewbank (a retired English professor) reimagines the story of Mary and her lamb as told through the great English poets. D.H. Lawrence’s Mary longs for her lamb as any woman longing for her lover, whilst T.S. Eliot’s Mary is recollected by an old man looking back on his life. Alexander Pope writes an “An Essay on Lambs,” and Tennyson’s lotus eaters become “The Clover Eater.”

Brilliantly written, sophisticated, and laugh-out-loud funny, these poems, enhanced by Vineyard resident Kate Feiffer’s witty and whimsical illustrations, will enchant anyone who has ever read an English poem and engage those who haven’t. The perfect gift for the English majors in your life.
