A detailed profile is at author dianefurtneybooksBOOK SUMMARY SCIENCE AND by Diane Furtney is a moving, insightful, funny and exuberant collection of poems sometimes the reader feels like an assistant at bold experiments in a wildly colored lab Unusual discoveries in nine sciences turn into deeply imagined metaphors and tropes in five sections Science and Family, Science and Romance, Science and the Homo Sapiens Young, Science and Irritation, Science and the Surround A dramatic nonmetrical couplet form presses the data into trenchant narrative lyrics of love, loss, and growth, as well as a couple of cautionary parables The poems arrive convincingly at Epicurean goals for living and the steady conviction of being at home in the universe This is a breakthrough of fresh thinking about the flexibility of poetry and the excitement of living amidst non received ideas Only a general familiarity with empirical science is needed.DIANE FURTNEY, BRIEF BIOGRAPHY After her Tulsa upbringing and with a psychology degree from Vassar College, Diane Furtney worked a year in Israel 1967 , then took an assortment of jobs, sometimes in clinical psychology, in several U.S cities Besides nonfiction ghostwriting, she has authored two prize winning poetry chapbooks DESTINATION ROOM and IT WAS A GAME and two comic mystery novels pseudonym D.J.H Jones Her poems and translations French, Japanese are in numerous magazines in the U.S and England, including The Virginia Quarterly Review, Poetry International, and Stand She lives near PhoenixCKGROUND, SCIENCE AND During the early years of my career, I was, like all poets, embarrassed and irked by the challenge thrown down in a footnote in one of Richard Feynman s Lectures on Physics Vol I, section 3 , which has been justifiably quoted uncountable times far marvelous is the truth than any artists of the past imagined it Why do the poets of the present not speak of it What men are poets who can speak of Jupiter if he were a man, but if he is an immense spinning sphere of methane and ammonia must be silent Of course, all scientists know that the universe is located inside the instrument with which you choose to observe it I think the same obtains in the arts, where the instrument is the form When in the mid 1990s I began to focus on somehow shoehorning empirical subject matters into lyric poetry, it was a new hybrid couplet form, which I d been using in another collection, that became an instrument for me to answer in my way great Feynman s great question SCIENCE AND is the eventual result.As for whether I still am a Singularitarian, a futurist, and a proponent of the outlook that flourished in the Garden of Epicurus well, given what s now available to know about our cosmic origin and our cosmic opportunities and what may turn out to be our cosmic responsibilities, is there any other outlook that finds itself increasingly confirmed and increasingly light hearted
