9780898753288: The Intelligence of the Flowers

Maeterlinck thoroughly enjoyed science and wrote about the termites, the ants, the bees, and the flowers. From an early age bees had fascinated Maeterlinck. It was logic that drew him to write about the intelligence of flowers. . . bees and flowers! He won the 1911 Nobel Prize for literature.

From the Author:

"I wish merely to recall here a few facts known to every botanist. I have made not a single discovery and my modest contribution is confined to a few elementary observations. I need hardly say that I have no intention of reviewing all the proofs of intelligence which the plants give us. These proofs are innumerable and continual, especially among the flowers, in which the effort of vegetable life towards light and understanding is concentrated."

Maurice Maeterlinck
