I disagree with Jade, who maintains there's not too much to think about
here, although I don't see any reference, as Heather does, of a cult. Seems
to me that there is much rich symbolism and imagery that provides plenty
material to ponder. For me, at any rate. Besides, if a poem doesn't give
to much to think about, what's the point? I don't think Plath is a writer
of empty poems.

Actually, Sylvia Plath kept a hive of her own and was apart of the
Beekeepers Association of her town. This was an account of her first
meeting. Not too much to think about here.

The poem "The Bee Meeting" by Sylvia Plath has been giving me some trouble
- I don't fully understand it. But I do believe that the last stanza has to
do with the speakers death. I think that the conforming mentioned in
earlier stanzas has to do with members in a colt and that the speaker is
the sacrifice at a meeting.
