'In The mathematics of love, Sonia Hunt uses irony with flair whether she is teasing her resident mathematician in "An orange for you" with "I wanted to show you/ how an orange is peeled / but I was stopped/ by its bite on my tongue" or mocking herself in the playful Migraine sequence: "migraine is a lot like childbirth / you really don't want to be there".

The satirical "To my coy mistress", inspired by T.S. Eliot's Cats is a flight of fancy. The philosophically challenged Cleopatra deftly moves us between Buddhism and Existentialism with a nod to writers such as Nietzsche and Keats.

The mathematics of love is an eclectic mix from a poet who loves the sensuality of words and can make them jump.
