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.

Reviews

I am pleased to recommend this uncommon volume to instructors of chemistry and other science courses who would like to introduce an extra, humanistic dimension to their lectures that may enable them to motivate students 'turned off' by the conventional, somewhat sterile, abstract approach. The book's uses are limited only by the instructor's imagination. (George B. Kauffman, Journal of Chemical Education)
