Quantum Singularity: A Poetic Voyage Through Time and Space

We rated this book:

$10.00

What happens when the mind-bending concepts of modern science, like quantum theory and entanglement, meet the rhythms of verse or the metaphorical depths of language in poetry? In the right hands, something quite engaging emerges.

Mingling the emotional content of the poems with the scientific framework of the various chapter-heading concepts — from singularity to parity — layers wonder upon wonder as they weave together. You are left adrift in Croft’s words, either clinging to the emotional side or the scientific firmament, whichever comes more naturally to you, while the other washes over you. It’s a curious sensation, to be sure.

The collection starts off slowly, but builds into something full of personal fire and electric phrasing. “Give me neon” is just wonderful, and represents the crispness of Croft’s word choices. The constant use of “you” in the poems makes you more than a passenger along for the ride; you’re an integral part of the journey forward. Quantum Singularity is unlike any poetry collection I’ve read before. It was strange and engrossing and challenging all at once.
