Martin Harrison


Wild Bees is a subtle and sharply lyrical collection of poems that shimmer on the eye while being deeply held at the back of the mind.

Martin Harrison has been described as a writer whose poetry is a meeting place between the immensity, and intensity, of the Australian environment and the hi-tech world of everyday life.

Collected here is the poet’s own re-casting of his work since the early 1990s, setting accomplished poems from earlier books in the company of recent poems and prose poems.

Praise for Wild Bees:

Harrison is concerned with the ‘magic’ of poetic sight and sound; with our everyday perception being stretched almost to the point of non-perception.
