Wild Bees: New and Selected Poems
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.
Shortlisted – 2010 Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature (John Bray Poetry Award)
Won – 2009 APA Book Design Awards (Best Book Design Cover)
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.DAVID MCCOOEY, AUSTRALIAN BOOK REVIEW
