Medicine is one of the sciences, and here is a fine poem:
” I felt that poetry shouldn’t be an escape from reality, but rather an immersion into reality, and part of my reality was, indeed, my hospital life at the time. And so I became prepared to write poems which had medical undertones. Louis Pasteur once said (talking of scientific inspiration), ‘Chance favors the prepared mind,’ and my mind was prepared to write poems that were medically coloured.” Dannie Abse , from a lecture and reading delivered by the poet at the NYU School of Medicine, April 8, 1999.
