Poetry. As a scientist and poet, Lucille Lang Day goes beyond celebration of the natural world to explore the intersections of science, nature, and human experience, and to meld scientific accuracy with intuition. "Intelligence enjoying itself, awareness at play, attentiveness dancing through life's minefields: smiling at itself in its new black car ('Nor have I shunned onyx jewelry. That would be foolish'), Lucille Lang Day will at first glance make you smile and smile again. Then, with her scientist's mind, her woman's heart, her pain at injustice and evil, and her poet's eye and ear, she will carry you 'through the mountains and canyons of space-time' to a fuller humanity. THE CURVATURE OF BLUE is a wonderful book and I feel lucky to have read it"--Alicia Ostriker.
