Carol Frost explores the experience of her mother's struggle with Alzheimer's disease with these poems. She uses the disappearance of bees as her prevailing metaphoric backdrop (so says the back of the book). It's gorgeous writing.

Carol Frost was born in 1948 in Lowell, Massachusetts

Carol Frost was born in 1948 in Lowell, Massachusetts. Frost's poems draw on sources from the book of Genesis to Shakespeare’s The Tempest to the poetry of John Donne; she writes of the human body, and her poems are rich with the acutely imagined objects of the natural world-whether found off the coast of Florida or in a beehive. Honeycomb, which won the Gold Medal in Poetry from the Florida Book Awards, treats the subject of dementia through a sustained metaphor of the beehive.

Moscow Carol by Joseph Brodsky. The pallid puff, the draught of frost Will sheathe your face until you blush. In such an inexplicable blue Upon the stonework to embark The little ship of glowing hue. Page. Joseph Brodsky (24 May 1940 – 28 January 1996, Leningrad). The honeycomb of windows fits The smell of halva and of zest, While Christmas Eve is carrying its Mince pies abreast. Watch your New Year come in a blue Seawave across the town terrain In such an inexplicable blue, As if your life can start again, As if there can be bread and light - A lucky day - and something's left, As if your life can sway aright, Once swayed aleft.

Charming book with some of Frost's best loved poems, although I was sad not to see "Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening" as one of them.

Oates's introduction to Akashic's noir volume dedicated to the Garden State, with its evocative definition of the genre, is alone worth the price of the book. Williams, Paul Muldoon, and others-plus photos by Gerald Slota-enhance this distinguished entry.

The poems in PEN Award–winning author Carol Frost’s ninth collection spring from her experiences with her mother’s struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, forming a deeply moving meditation on memory and its role in the creation and evolution of identity and relationships. Frost maintains complete command of her imaginative leaps between the natural and spiritual worlds in diverse poetic forms. Using the disappearance of bees as her prevailing metaphoric backdrop, the poet deftly explores the varied emotions occasioned by her mother’s slow deterioration. Like its eponym, Honeycomb is stunning in its details, but it wears its craftsmanship lightly, yielding an accessible yet profound work.
