It covers a very wide range of subjects:art, sciences and philosophy, theology, history, mythology, terrorism, exorcism, rape, battered wives, satire, and of course love, illness, and death. Where else will you find a poem called Theology and the Electron? The book shows the reactions of the author to events over 60-70 years. An important feature of this collection are the footnotes, that makes the understanding of the poems easier as well as providing unusual insights, like a Roman goddess still invoked in 17th Century Italy. Scientists will find poems already used in a Physics degree course.
