This is a simple, sweet novel that tells of a poet, his struggles with the muse, and a donkey named Whiffenpoof. Adding to the story are lovely little snapshot illustrations by Stefan Martin which help to bring Sarton's words to life.

It's an easy, lovely story, gorgeously written, and as calm and refreshing as a Sunday morning drive through the country, as if from another time.

Recommended for anyone interested.

I cannot possibly rate this book. It has nettled me; I have written pages of notes, partially copying down insightful passages and partially writing paragraphs trying to figure out why a particular passage strikes me as false or unearned. Of course the gender politics are...frustrating, at best, partially because the insight and the self-loathing (Sarton would not have recognized it as that, but) are so tied up together. Partially because, like Le Guin in The Left Hand of Darkness, Sarton wrote this novel at a time when the like, basic foundational language of feminism was very much still being invented, but Sarton seems less aware of the linguistic/culturally-accepted-reality gap she is trying to cross and encircle.
Everything sbout this novel partially, but. It certainly set things in motion in me.

Het lijkt een eenvoudig boek met natuurbeschrijvingen en gedachten maar het is zeker iets om over na te denken. Het thema eenzaamheid: enerzijds belangrijk om productief te kunnen zijn en iets om naar te verlangen, anderzijds is er de behoefte aan relaties en het delen van ervaringen en gezelligheid.

The Fur Person is a short novella by poet/authoress May Sarton who tells about the stray cat that found it’s way into her home and her heart. Considering himself a Cat About Town, he has lived a fairly carefree life but he decides it is time to become a Gentleman Cat and find a home. He is most particular over his requirements but believes he has found the perfect home with the two ladies that take him in. Of course it wouldn’t be a May Sarton book without some poems, and our Gentleman Cat offers up some excellent rhymes.

Renamed Tom Jones he goes through a few stages where he is Terrible Jones, the fighter, then, after being fixed he becomes Gentle Cat, Cat of Peace, Glorious Jones and, finally Fur Person. This is an author who obviously knows and understands cats and above all, allows Tom Jones to maintain his dignity. The story is simple and charming being based on the life of Sarton’s cat, but avoids crossing over into become too sweet. The book has some lovely illustrations by David Canright and was originally published in 1957. It has withstood the test of time and will be greatly appreciated by those of us who have had the pleasure of having a cat in their life.
