Poetry in the museum

At the invitation of Carol Ann Duffy, ten poets will be taking up residencies across the University of CambridgeThe Museum of Classical Archaeology will host Sean Borodale, whose recent Bee Journal was one of the Guardian's books of the year 2011.  Here is Sean's website, which unfortnately seems to be mostly dark grey text on a black background.  You can read an extract from it here.

And here is a picture of Vergil writing about bees from a 15th c. edition of the Georgics.
