Finding lost science in early modern poetry

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 22nd Nov 2017

Come to the Wellcome Library and rediscover how people in the early modern era understood science.

You will be able to look at facsimiles and genuine early printed books describing scientific phenomena through poetry and containing remarkable images. In small groups you will be able to get close to the ‘real thing’.

We will discuss questions such as why science was conveyed through poetry, what this tells us about the intended audiences, and how these books were produced. As a highlight there will be recitations of excerpts of poetry in the books.

Cost: Free of Charge
