Reviews

Sean Borodale is without doubt the most exciting new poet I have read since Alice Oswald. His Bee Journal raises the bar for us all and announces a thrilling new voice in British poetry -- Carol Ann Duffy
Truly heady and intense poems, honey itself in poetic form, a sustained tour de force of language and thought -- Simon Armitage
This book is a kind of uncut home-movie of bees. I like its oddness and hurriedness, its way of catching the world exactly as it happens in the split-second before it sets into poetry. These are pre-poems, note-poems dictated by phenomena. Their context is bees, but their subject (intriguingly) is Time... -- Alice Oswald
Harbours great energy and abundant imagination...a strikingly original voice * Resurgence *
Borodale is an extremely accomplished poet...the most beautiful expression of what it is like to live with bees that you could hope to find...they show a wonderful clarity of thought and expression and a great talent for capturing an impression. The recent rising popularity of beekeeping has spawned a number of popular books on the subject but this towers above them all in ambition and emotional effect. It is an exquisite window into bees and beekeeping -- Ian Douglas * Telegraph *
