AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Bee Hut, [Dorothy Porter's] fifteenth book, brings together the poems she wrote in the last five years of her life. By turns expansive and intimate, effusive and contemplative, these poems roam widely: there are journeys into history and to sacred places both mythic and deeply personal.' (From the publisher's website.)

Notes

  • Poems divided into sections: Head of Astarte; The Enchanted Ass; Poems: January - August 2004; Smelling Tigers; Jerusalem; Africa; The Freak Songs; Lucky.
