You might not expect Math and Poetry to share a month, but they have more in common than you would expect. Mathematicians describe their work as beautiful. Their numbers, lines, and graphs create patterns that then inspires poetry. As you listen to some of our audiobooks you will notice that these mathematicians needed words and sometimes metaphor to make themselves understood. Just like poets used structure and patterns to polish their poems.
