Strong, Certain and Alone: Poems in the Voice of Isaac Newton
Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) is considered by many to have been the greatest scientist of all time. His studies in the properties of light, the mechanics of motion, the workings of gravity and many other topics set the stage for all subsequent examinations in the theories of physics and astronomy. Personally, Newton was a difficult man whose dealings with others sometimes led him into arguments and downright battles. These poems, written as though in his own voice, show him to be a person much more at ease in searching for answers to the mysteries of the universe than to the secrets of his own heart.
