Product Description


“In Madhur Anand’s poems the ancient false dichotomy between art and science collapses, and does so with such grace, wit, and élan you’d think this had been its purpose all along. These poems are alive with the potency of their own hybrid attentions – rapt, nimble, and capable of unlocking the energies asleep in eco-scientific jargon as well as popular culture and the poet’s Indian heritage. Here is a writing full of linguistic and conceptual verve, essential reading for all of us interested in poetry and the ecological arts.” 
--Don McKay, Griffin Poetry Prize–winning author of Strike/Slip

"Anand's attention to and ability to evoke explicit, exponential beauty in scientific and natural form are simply stunning" (Publishers Weekly).

This is a wonderful book of poems motivated by science (including at times reference to her own work) It reminds us that CP Snow was wrong about the two cultures. There indeed two cultures: those of good writing/thinking and those of poor writing/thinking.
