‘Beautiful and moving poetry for the real world’ Jeanette Winterson, Guardian

‘Wonderful . . . a poet alert to every sound and shape of language’ Sunday Telegraph

The Bees is Carol Ann Duffy’s first collection of poems as Poet Laureate. In it she uses her full poetic range: there are drinking songs, love poems, poems of political anger; there are elegies, too, for beloved friends, and – most movingly – the poet’s own mother.

Woven and weaving through the book is its presiding spirit: the bee. Sometimes the bee is Duffy’s subject, sometimes it strays into the poem, or hovers at its edge. In the end, Duffy’s point is clear: the bee symbolizes what we have left of grace in the world, and what is most precious and necessary for us to protect. The Bees, at once intimate and public, is a work of great power from one of our most cherished poets.

‘Swooningly glorious’ The Times

‘Indisputably her best volume’ Sunday Times

‘Duffy is magnificent, grounded, heartfelt, dedicated to the notion that poetry can give us the music of life itself’ Scotsman

Review:

"By turns mythic and elegiac, there s a lyrical intimacy to many of these poems, which embrace both a love of nature and a personal family devotion. Playful and witty, Duffy s accessible style is more often passionate than cerebral... Beneath the pastoral is a sharper edge that scythes through complacency" --Financial Times

"This is a wonderfully varied collection. Here s a mixter maxter of every kind of Duffy poem: angry, political, elegiac, witty, nakedly honest, accessible, mysterious" --Liz Lochhead, Guardian

Book Description:

A critically acclaimed collection from the Poet Laureate.
