Seeing Galileo

Seeing Galileo contains poetry, photography, and scripts, with a critical introduction that touches on key literary and historical conjunctions. The writing within this volume is in part inspired by the encounter between Milton and Galileo, imaginary or otherwise, while the photographs are from Florence and Pisa, where Galileo was born, and where, at the age of twenty-five, he became Chair of Mathematics.
