Description

Looking deeply into humanity's interactions with the animal world, Linda Frank considers our fascination with and fear of nature, as well as our exploitation of all species. These poems catalogue not only the beautiful and sometimes deadly complexity of our natural world, but investigate the ways we have sought to understand it, highlighting the struggle of women scientists to push past misogyny. In these poems Nabokov's butterflies live on beside flea circuses and von Frisch's bees are as detailed as the habits of the jewel wasp. This is a collection written with a botanist's eye and a scientist's attention to cause and effect, both a lament and paean to a world that is vanishing.
