- Although Number Freak by Derrick Niederman is pretty fun reading, what I really want to own is Strange Attractors: Poems of Love and Mathematics. Now that I think about it, I’d like a book on mathematics that will finally enable me to understand it well enough to write poems like the ones shown here; for now, I think I can play around with these forms.
- More than fifteen years ago, I had to study Euclid’s Elements twice in a single school year. The first was for a math class, the second was for a lit class. I loved it more the second time around, and I’m a little tempted to re-read it now. If not, I think I’d be over the moon with a copy of Guillevic’s recently-Englished poetry collection Geometries (original French title: Euclidiennes).
