Poetic science

Posted in at 10:46 by RjZ

I read the following in the first few pages of a book I am reading (a review should come later). During an impassioned argument that science may have a place in describing the human experience in ways heretofore considered outside the realm of science, came this:

There are still some people who will reject any description of human nature that was not first communicated in iambic pentameter.

I see a clear opportunity for a poet friend of mine! His humorous, clever, and sometimes metered, poetry is just the thing! He could collect the theories of Newton, Einstein, and Darwin, and rewrite them in metered verse! If this humorous quote is really true, he’d be solving a great social problem for us all!

I hope you’re reading LunarHalo.
