Artistry of Science Poetry
Facilitator: Rachel Rayner
Poetry has communicated emotions and stories for millennia. So how does science – stereotyped as purely logical and rational – fit with romantic notions of poetry?
Take a trip through the history of the English language to arrive in our modern times: where poetry is holding on as a relevant art form. By combining the extended vocabulary and way of thinking that science gives us, we can create interesting ways to describe our emotions and experiences of a complex world.
Listen to some early and contemporary poetry from around the world, and consider how poetry may enhance scientific ideas and vice versa.
