About this book

Papiliones by Jonathan Bradley is a collection of poems inspired by butterflies, as well as the stories behind their often unusual and exotic names, and colour photographs. In this charming collection, the poems evoke both the colourful lives of these lovely insects and the emotions that they arouse in us. Each poem is unique, frequently inspired by the unusual scientific names given to them, which are often poetic in themselves. The poems lead the reader on a journey of discovery of these delicate creatures, each poem and each butterfly a new delight.

Jonathan Bradley was born in 1951, and has been writing poetry since the age of fourteen, at the same time as pursuing a career in business, as a university academic, and for an international educational body connected with the United Nations. His longstanding passion for butterflies was inspired by walks in the country with his now-adult children when they were young. He has a strong commitment to conserving butterflies and their environments. He lives near Bristol with his wife Harriet, and is currently working on a second collection of poems.
