Description

John Doyle is a pseudonym for Robert Graves. This book is a silly rhyming poem from the point of view of an academic's pet monkey who displays his prodigious reading in a satirical and quick-witted manner: "I was a scholar's monkey. I read his books through. / My reading reminds me how sadly they need / These constant adventures after something new."
