Imaginary Bonnets with Real bees in them mediates on poetry and mythology, geology and the environment, teachers and the lyric, bees and bears, genetics, memory, personal history, and much else. In three wide-ranging lectures Paula Meehan charts a contemporary poet's relationship with community (emblematised by bees), family (emblematised by bears), and selfhood (emblematised by water).
