Cosmic reflections within the human soul
"Song of Two Worlds" by Alan Lightman (2009). Visceral, sensual, and reflective. This is a book of verse that is a bridge between science and the arts (to which only a few can do well - and one is Lightman). The book is like describing a fine wine - notes of Ovid and Pablo Neruda, Virgil and Dante are layered in, and with nuances of T.S. Eliot's 'Four Quartets.' Set in an a sparse, yet exotic locale, the words are of honeycomb and dates and sun-baked bread. The human soul in search of questions - more than answers.Was this review helpful?
