String Theory by Robert C. Covel

The poems in this book are meditations on the universe, from the physical to the metaphysical, from the cosmic to the comic. They are about the interconnectedness of everything and about the relationship between perceptions and reality in human life.

About the Author

"I am a retired teacher. I enjoyed exposing my students to the world of thought and philosophy using literature as my medium. I taught my students that the universe is unified and that the study of literature must include philosophy, art, music, and science. I am especially interested in modern physics as it connects to metaphysics (hence the title of my book, "String Theory"). My poetry is an attempt to explore the interconnectedness of everything. As I told my students constantly, "It all connects."
"I am a Zen Buddhist, but I see all religions as one. Religions are all attempts to explain the unity of the cosmos and to find order in the chaos. That is what my poetry explores. I began all of my classes with the ancient story of the blind men and the elephant, which gave them the basic archetypal image of my monist perspective.
"Poetry, like life, should be a profound and playful celebration of life, death, and everything."
Robert was nominated for the 2012 Georgia Author of the Year Award for his book String Theory.

Everything in the universe—you, me, the flea on your dog, the planet Pluto, the black hole at the center of many galaxies—is connected. The basis for this, if current theory holds: vibrating strings of pure energy. But one need not wait for that proof: Bob Covel shows us, with vibrating words and resonant imagery in his superbly constructed collection of poems, String Theory. Dr. Covel renders observations about the universe in beautiful, haunting, and sometimes capricious, songs of life and of death, of love and loss, in free verse, sonnets, villanelles and haiku. Something for everyone. All connected. All part of the Great Fabric. Here are poems you’ll want to linger over, ponder, and return to time and again.
