Summary of “Concrete Cat “

The concrete cat is a concrete poem composed by Dorthi Cgarles. The poem draws a picture of the cat on the paper. The picture is drawn with words, but not sentences. The world cat does not appear, but the other words are the names of the body of a cat, for example eye, mouth, paw and whisker. Other words are added to put the cat in place, for example dish and litter box. These tell us the cat is a pet and not a wild cat.
    Concrete poems are visual. The poet has used the Y to look like eyebrows, U to look like a tongue, A to show the height of eyes etc. The mouse is return upside down to suggest it is dead.
