The Twain Meet

The Physical Sciences and Poetry


Noojin Walker and Martha Fulton-Walker

The Twain Meet describes the dynamic relationship that exists between two seemingly dissimilar endeavors - the physical sciences and poetry. The book traces the evolving principles of the physical sciences over a span of two thousand years. It demonstrates, with over 200 poems, how poets have served as communicators and interpreters of science, and how poets have used the principles of science in metaphors to bring special meanings to their works.
Contents: The atom, order, chemistry, light, sound, earth and sky, matter, relativity, acclaim and disclaim.
