This text contains a collection of poetry written by Alfred Noyes, first published in 1922. The poems revolve around number of great scientific minds whose contributions to human endeavour are more than remarkable and, in the author's mind, of great poetic value. A wonderful compendium of poesy sure to appeal to lovers of poetry as well as those interested in the cultural history of science, this anthology well deserves a place atop any bookshelf. It also constitutes a must-read for fans of Noyes's seminal work. The poems included herein are: 'Copernicus', 'Tycho', 'Brahe', 'Kepler', 'Galileo', 'Newton', 'William Herschel Conducts', and 'Sir John Herschel Remembers.' Alfred Noyes (1880 - 1958) was an English poet, composer of short stories, and playwright, most remembered for his ballads: 'The Highwayman' and 'The Barrel-Organ'. We are proud to republish this antique book, now complete with a new prefatory biography of Alfred Noyes.
