208 ROSENBERG, Ann Bee Book

ROSENBERG, Ann. The Bee Book. Toronto : The Coach House Press, (1981). Pp. (6),[7]-195,(5). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated purple card covers. "The BeeBook is a startling contribution to the literature of the sexes. It's a De e story, full of honey and stings and flight formations (signwriting). It tells the life, all the way from the little girl who soiled her pants, to the woman who crawls into her hexagon and prepares for flight. Its [sic] a book that falls joyously between the categories ot novel, drama, game, poetryand chance. It's one of a kind, and a serious one too. At ten, HabeUa is a dynamo of lust and intelligence. Miss Kelly teaches her the language of th e bees, and this becomes her way of understanding (trying to) the world, that odd gallery of drones and queens and workers. Repressed by elders, like 'the grey and sour bride of Christ.' Habella's sexuality becomes a problem.Through the whole tragicomedy of motherhood and selfliberation, it's her b ee-knowledge that keeps Habella sane. It comes eventually to take the placeof religion. 'What we must wonder about,' she says, 'is how we ourselves b ecome sexual creatures, by considering the lives of the bees.' The Bee Bookdoes exactly that for the reader, in a lurching ritual (flight). (Bill Sch ermbrucher, Editor, The Capilano Review, quoted on the back cover). Contents : Preface; Learning the Dances; The Worker; The Drone; Becoming Queen; The Virgin Becomes the Bride; The Nuptial Flight; Propolis, Venom & Other Substances; New Queens & Drones; The Queen.
