Following the pattern of medieval bestiaries, Brendon’s book illuminates the life and work of Winston Churchill through animals, from the Albatross he invoked in an important parliamentary speech in 1935, to his fondness for Zoos, despite his aversion to captivity. As well as the pets, menagerie and game that played significant roles in his life, the Bestiary explores Churchill’s frequent and often memorable use of animal imagery, such as likening himself to the lion’s roar, in writings and speeches.
