William Rowan Hamilton, the great 19th century mathematical physicist, tried his hand at poetry, so it is entirely appropriate that he should be celebrated in that form. Iggy McGovern, physicist and poet, has written a sonnet sequence which reflects views of Hamilton by his contemporaries. McGovern's work is characterised by a wry sense of humour. Participants will perform the readings, some of which will have a scientific perspective, from the likes of Airy and Tait, but others will feature notable figures from Irish society.
