Maeterlinck, was a Belgian poet, dramatist, essayist and winner of the 1911 Nobel Prize in Literature, whose literary career began with the publication of two volumes of poetry. Lack of action, fatalism, mysticism, and the constant presence of death characterize the works of Maeterlinck. The shadow of death looms even larger in his later plays. Although Maurice Maeterlinck was an enthusiastic beekeeper and thoroughly familiar with the life of the bees, he did not intend to write a scientific treatise. This book is not an abstract of natural history but an exuberantly poetic work abounding in reflections, wherein Maeterlinck sets out his philosophy of the human condition.
