Since Einstein established his relativity equations, physics has understood the basic properties of time. We know, for example, that we exist in four-dimensional space-time. We know that time stretches and flexes and flips. We know that the pace of time dilates—that, instead of being constant, it varies, depending on local conditions of velocity and gravity.

Peter Dale Scott’s poems have been praised by Robert Hass, Thom Gunn, and Robert Pinsky; and in 2002 he won the Lannan Poetry Award. His eighth book of poems looks back on six decades of experiences as a confused student in Paris, a diplomat in Poland, Vienna and New York, a professor of English at UC Berkeley in the tumultuous sixties, and after retirement a tutor in Buddhist Thailand- all of the poems in search of “this oxymoron/ the meaning of life".
