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.
