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.
Susan B. A. Somers-Willett is the author of a book of poetry, Roam, and a book of criticism, The Cultural Politics of Slam Poetry: Race, Identity, and the Performance of Popular Verse in America. She lives in Austin, Texas.
