From the publisher

Re-Dreaming Sylvia Plath as a Queen Bee draws connection between the Ariel poems of Sylvia Plath and the esteemed bee-science of her father/beekeeper, Otto Emil Plath. This reading of Plath's poetry and its closeness to a science, examines how science can disturb the tenets/existence of what it seeks to know through a methodology of intervention; and by turn, offers a reading of how art can seek to calibrate a residual energy of distress through a process of vital experience; activating poetry as a healer of science, discovering science as a pre-life of poetry.
