A Quark for Mr Mark: 101 Poems about Science

by Maurice Riordan and John Turney (eds)

Wonderfully poetic responses to science, some direct, some more oblique. The variety is almost as impressive as the universe itself, while some of the poems explain theories which in science books are impossible to grasp, whether you're a science boffin or not. This collection leaves you with a great sense of wonder and astonishment.


Science promises great things in the new
century, and no doubt poets will continue
to engage with new as well as old science
