Later this week a scheduled screening (in nearby Takoma Park, MD) of a film about Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) has prompted me to return to some rereading of Dickinson's verse -- which is occasionally mathematical. For example:
We shall find the Cube of the Rainbow by Emily Dickinson
We shall find the Cube of the Rainbow.
Of that there is no doubt.
But the Arc of a Lover's conjecture
Eludes the finding out.
The stanza above is found in many places; my source is Strange Attractors: Poems of Love and Mathematics, ed. by S Glaz and JA Growney (AK Peters/CRC Press, 2008). This link leads to previous postings of Dickinson's work in this blog.
