In contemporary times, Amy Catanzano is a name that stands out for her ground-breaking work and research on the intersections of poetry and science. The poet quotes – “Quantum poetics is an artistic treatment of the poetry-science connection, but within its artistry is an intellectual commitment to accurately representing the science in which it engages .” Sharpless 29 by Indian Poet Linda Ashok, is an extraordinary, bold, and breathtaking attempt in the same direction.
