#5 Wednesday: Rae Armantrout – Chimera: Where Poetry and Physics Meet
This presentation argues that compartmentalization is the enemy of creativity. It is specifically concerned with some surprising overlaps between poetry and theoretical physics – what they have in common and how they can, and have, spoken to one another. Armantrout will discuss a class (Poetry for Physicists) which she co-taught with cosmologist Brian Keating at UC San Diego, as well as the influence readings in physics, have had on her own poetry. The talk will include a discussion of poems by Emily Dickinson, William Blake, Wallace Stevens, and Rae Armantrout.
