In this book, Jon Allman affirms the connections between poetry and science. They are, he says, as 'old as the once between poetry and cosmology, beauty and knowledge, pleasure and speculation.' In reading this collection of 'Science Poems, ' we are reminded of a philosophical tradition in literature, that, with Lucretius, sees in the power of love the binding force of the universe.
