"...a wonderfully enjoyable, insightful and worthwhile read ... This work would be of interest to anyone excited by the remarkable process of the plant world and would expressly appeal to gardeners and flower growers." -- Huntia

"A rare gem, written ... in lyrical and accessible prose." -- The Times Literary Supplement

"...Maeterlinck is a seductive essayist ... [and] writes with the same intrinsic humility that will be familiar to admirers of John Muir, Aldo Leopold, or Mary Oliver." -- The Boston Globe

"That the intelligence of flowers provides Maeterlinck with a theory riddled with contradictions--mostly as a result of his metaphoric reasoning--seems less important than the fundamental truths of the metaphors unto themselves. As a result, 'The Intelligence of Flowers' is happily welcome once more, in this centenary reissue." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"The republication of Maurice Maeterlinck's 'The Intelligence of Flowers, ' regrettably forgotten in our time, is long overdue. The introduction by Mosley is itself a gem, and contains one of the best overviews in print of writings about intelligence in Nature." -- Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of The Secret Teachings of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in the Direct Perception of Nature
