    schema:description "At the crossroads of science, mathematics, and art lives Quiver, a stunning new collection of poems that seeks to reconcile the empirical truths of science with the emotional truths of human experience. Through an ambitious set of poetic series and sequences, Somers-Willett re-invents the love poem, conjuring a voyeuristic affair between a radio astronomer and Dark Matter, radium's atomic aubade for Marie and Pierre Curie, and the shrill love song of Gregor Mendel's cross-pollinated pea plants. With intelligence and wonder, Quiver comes to understand the pursuits of science and beauty as one and the same, rendering an exquisite world where the graph of a mathematical equation can become the image of "love's witness / running with its arms open all the way home." In deft, musical lyrics that are by turns formal and experimental, studied and accessible, meditative and pragmatic, Somers-Willett portrays scientific phenomena in strikingly intimate ways. Every mystery connects in her universe, revealing a relationship between science and human sentiment that is as surprising as it is profound. --University of Georgia Press." ;
