      Series: y separately published work icon Science Made Marvellous Carol Jenkins (editor), Potts Point : The Poets Union , 2010 Z1716916 2010 series - publisher poetry The Science Made Marvellous Series show off the rich entanglements of poetry and science. They celebrate science with poems that are concise, witty, observant, wondering and warmly appreciative. Here is poetry not just as litmus, measuring science's absorption into our lives, but poetry that experiments with science, in all its complex variables and hyperbolic hypotheses. -- Carol Jenkins - for The Poets Union (back cover)
