From the Introduction:
The present volume is the fourth poetry anthology that has grown out of the Bridges poetry readings.
Although richer and more diverse than its predecessors, the current volume springs from the same
source and shares the distinctive characteristics of the Bridges poetry readings -- it features poems
with multi-dimensional links to mathematics and a wide range of styles. This volume is organized in
three sections: The first section contains poems written by the poets invited to read at Bridges 2020;
the second section is devoted to work by poets who read at previous Bridges conferences but could
not participate this year; while the third section includes a selection of poems that arose out of the
Bridges community. This section brings a sample of poems of collaboration and response among
Bridges poets and artists. Complementing the information about the poets and the artists found on
these pages is a new webpage, "Bridges Poets' News," which highlights the latest poetry-related
publications, honors, and activities of the Bridges community. URLs for the sites of the Bridges
poetry readings, anthologies, and poets' news appear on the last page of the volume. This
anthology is printed in color. Cover image: "Shield 1" by Kerry Mitchell.
