Summary
A retelling of the anonymous Irish poem Pangur Bán. The monk in this poem leads a simple life -- he studies his books late into the evening, searching for meaning. His cat, Pangur, leads a simple life, too, chasing his prey in the darkness. As night turns to dawn, can each find what he seeks?
Summary
After spending a night studying his books, a monk reflects on his life and finds that he and his cat live equally simple lives, both in constant pursuit
