Item description for Human Cartography (New Odyssey Series) by James Gurley...

In this collection, poet James Gurley maps the emotional and physical landscapes we inhabit. His poems employ the theorems and metaphors of science to examine how history and the natural world around us help shape our lives. Displaying what 2002 T. S. Eliot judge David Wagoner called "the best kind of literary empathy," Gurley retells the stories of historical figures--naturalists, explorers, ornithologists, photographers--and brings these characters alive in a contemporary context that heightens the parallels between past and present. The different voices from science and art--usually seen as incompatible--link to form a comprehensive vision of the human experience.

Reviews - What do customers think about Human Cartography (New Odyssey Series)?

Helluva Book of Poems  Jul 2, 2002
Here, finally, is a poet who wants to remarry reason and passion into a symbiotic relationship--instead of distancing himself from the more analytic sciences (as most modern poets do). Gurley's poems examine the physical and empirical reality of the scientist with the subjective and sublime eye of the poet, transforming what he observes through a combination of scientific examination and a poetic love of language and metaphor. The end result is not only a happy co-existence of science and poetry on the page, but a great new well of poems. If you're interested--at all--in modern poetry, you should buy this book. You'll find yourself reading and re-reading the poems and counting the days until Mr. Gurley's next offering.
