At the crossroads of science, mathematics, and art lives ""Quiver"", a stunning 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 reinvents the love poem, 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'. With a deft, meditative sense of music, ""Quiver"" reveals a relationship between science and human sentiment that is as surprising as it is profound.

Recensioner i media

In Quiver, poetic imagination and scientific theory merge as 'math enacts speculation' and 'the beloved atoms sing.' Darwin, Oppenheimer, and the Curies appear amid the images and meditations rendered by the poet's generous, yet discerning skill. Somers-Willett is a poet as passionate and inventive as the radical thinkers she counts among her muses. Quiver is a marvel of exacting speculation and song. - Terrance Hayes, author of Wind in a Box
