Bee Journal (The Birds and the Bees) (Paperback)

Sean Borodale

-  

The Birds and the Bees series was designed for Vintage Classics by Timorous Beasties, the Scottish studio famous for their designs inspired by the natural world. Bee Journal is a poem-journal of beekeeping that chronicles the life of the hive. It observes the living architecture of the comb, the range and locality of the colony; its flights, flowers, water sources, parasites, lives and deaths. Because of its genesis as a working journal, there is here an unusual intimacy and scrutiny of life and death in nature. The language is dense and clotted, the imagery thrillingly fresh, and the observing eye close, scrupulous and full of wonder. WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY THE AUTHOR SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2012 T. S. ELIOT POETRY PRIZE.
