Macavity 那只淘气猫

昨天提到了 T. S. Eliot (艾略特)。他写的《荒原》  ( The Waste Land),不是凡夫俗子如我容易读懂的。

可是,他写的  Macavity – The Mystery Cat,是英国有名的通俗诗。通俗,是因为音乐剧大师 Andrew Lloyd Webber (韦伯)把大文豪写猫的诗歌,搬上了舞台,风靡了世界。

艾略特写猫的心理,用猫来刻画人性,或是用人性来刻画猫。这些诗歌都收录在 Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats 诗集里。

韦伯把艾略特的猫,变成了《Cats》音乐剧。 其中,Macavity 这只神通广大的淘气猫最叫人难忘。

BBC 请了 2007-2009 年的儿童文学桂冠  Michael Rosen 朗读了这首诗。朗诵的神态太美妙了,一定要看看。
