Panel

The science of poetry

It's a commonplace that science is interested in objective and provable facts, while poetry is subjective: charting human experience and sensation. But this view neglects the many centuries in which poetry has responded to dazzling insights of the "new philosophy", as John Donne called it, and science has explained itself with metaphor and intimations of the unknowable. In this panel we ask a group of scientifically-inclined poets how science works in and through their poetry, and what poetry can offer in understanding a changing physical world.
