 Lesley Saunders:

“Parsimony & Provisionality:

Do poetry & science have

interesting things in common?

Lesley Saunders is the author of four collections of poetry, including Christina the Astonishing, which she co-wrote with Jane Draycott.  Her latest book is Cloud Camera (Two Rivers Press 2012), which has been described as ‘a cabinet of curiosities, assembled by an enquiring mind to delight, astound and edify… Saunders dresses her discoveries in language that is precise, evocative and as grimly meaningful as fairy tales’. Her talk – which will also draw on her current experiences as writer-in-residence at the Oxford Museum of the History of Science – will invite us to consider the kinds of connections that can, and have been, made between poetry and science.
