About this book
Fleur Adcock's 2nd poetry compilation is a stunning celebration of bees, mosquitoes, dragonflies and other intriguing insects. 'Adcock's reputation has been founded on her spare, conversational poems, in which the style is deceptively simple, apparently translucent...' Jo Shapcott "TLS"
Fleur Adcock is one of Britain's leading poets. Her second new collection since Poems 1960-2000 - which won her the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry - has poems on insects, family and ancestors.
