Any work by Maurice Maeterlinck deserves a privileged place among letters. Here the author of 'The Life of The Bee' selects the remote water spider and the commonplace pigeon. Around these diverse subjects he portrays a pattern of life that is at once arresting and astonishing in its scientific precision and extraordinary observation.
