Blame it on Stoppard’s Arcadia—a gorgeous play filled with poetry and math, English professors and mathematicians and students and teachers (and turtles), all inhabiting a very rich, very smart world.

The images of fractals he’d generated on his laptop mirrored the mise-en-abyme of deconstruction; the proofs he’d talked about reproduced the precision of poetry in dazzling ways. —The Chronicle of Higher Education
