"Age of Wonder" is the perfect title for this book about science during the Romantic period. Being a scientist during that time must have been truly an exhilarating experience despite all the hardships and the excitement of discovery is palpable in Holmes' account.
Selected by Richard Harvell for NPR as a Book to Rekindle Your Sense of Wonder.
A wonderful book on the history of science centred around the Romantic period. I enjoyed the interposed examples of poetry from same period, and at last understood some of references in some of the poetry I studied in high school.
fascinating and readable with many anecdotes and just enough context
good portrayal of Caroline Herschel and a general 21st century feminist perspective on the age
