The concentrated industry of the ant and the delicate beauty of the butterfly, the rituals of the death watch beetle and the ethereal vision of glow worms at dusk, have all been captured in verse. In the pages of this anthology Tennent brings together classic poets such as Virgil and Byron and modern writers such as Pam Ayres, Spike Milligan and Peter Redgrove, alongside a wealth of other poets and amateur poets from different continents, to explore the mysterious world of the insect through poetry.
