Who or what is The Beekeeper's Daughter?

The Beekeeper's Daughter is
  • an 1881 oil painting by Henry Bacon
  • a poem by Sylvia Plath
  • the sometime name of a film aka Sylvia released in 2003 about the relationship between the poets Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath.
  • the poem was a probable inspiration for a forthcoming album by Tori Amos
  • a play by Ivica Boban about “the horrors of a faraway war, so they threw in a love story, some generation-gap conflict and a couple of nude scenes”.
  • a book by Canadian poet Bruce Hunter
  • and since Google seems to rule the world, a speciality honey shop in California (it tops the Google listing!).
