About this book

Pig, porker, hog, swine however you refer to him, there is no doubt that the chubby quadruped with the curly tail and the big oink is regarded with enormous affection. The author explores the influence of the pig's characteristics and his quirky nature on our language, literature and general outlook on life. Piggy appearances in the media, both ancient and modern, are celebrated with a wide array of quotations from such diverse sources as Horace, Shakespeare, Bunyan and Kipling, not to mention Noel Coward, Beatrix Potter and The Goon Show! Higgledy-Piggledy offers us a marvellous selection of sayings and proverbs concerning all things porcine.
