Boston: Houghton-Mifflin, 1998. First Edition, First Printing. Newsletter Text: Richard Dawkins UNWEAVING THE RAINBOW [SIGNED] Boston; New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1998. Did Newton "unweave the rainbow" by reducing it to its prismatic colors, as Keats contended? Did he, in other words, diminish beauty? Far from it, says acclaimed scientist Richard Dawkins; Newton's unweaving is the key to much of modern astronomy and to the breathtaking poetry of modern cosmology. Mysteries don't lose their poetry because they are solved: the solution often is more beautiful than the puzzle, uncovering deeper mysteries. Hardcover with dust jacket. 336 pages.
