My guess (since I haven't read them myself) is: The Ballad of Beta-2/Empire
Star, by Samuel R. Delany.
The blurb for _The Ballad of Beta-2_ says ". . . Joneny, a student of
galactic anthropology, is given the assignment of finding the meaning behind the
ballad of a starship lost centuries before." The blurb for _Empire Star_ says
". . . Comet Jo, the cat-bodied star-wanderer . . . meets, in his travels:
the Lump, a half-alien, half-machine; Ni Ty Lee, the suicidal poet of the stars;
the strange multiple consciousness called Jewel . . ." Does any of that
sound familiar? I haven't read it either. My copy (from 1965) isn't in the
format. It's just one story after the other in a single paperback.
