Bees play an important part in La mort i la primavera (Death in Spring), by Mercè Rodoreda. The writer revisits the age-old symbolism of bees, according to which these insects are vehicles for souls between worlds, making them appear in the text as representations of death and rebirth. Poet Arnau Pons, the author of the epilogue to the new Catalan edition of the novel, will offer us a reading and commentary.
