This book attempts to dispel the mystery by analyzing the works, and the working methods of an artist and a scientist of acknowledged genius - the poet Emily Dickinson and the theoretical physicist Willard Gibbs. The comparison is given force, not only by the analysis, but also by the similarities in their lives and surroundings- both were products of the late nineteenth century mini-renaissance that flowered briefly in New England. In the end, the boundary between the two cultures begins to fade, and theoretical physics emerges as a form of poetry.
