I know why the Caged Bird Sings.

Among them are the astronomer maria mitchell, who did the same in art; the journalist and literary critic Margaret Fuller, who paved the way for women in science; the sculptor Harriet Hosmer, who sparked the feminist movement; and the poet Emily Dickinson. Emanating from these lives are larger questions about the measure of a good life and what it means to leave a lasting mark of betterment on an imperfect world: Are achievement and acclaim enough for happiness? Is genius? Is love? Weaving through the narrative is a set of peripheral figures—Ralph Waldo Emerson, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Frederick Douglass, poetry, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Walt Whitman—and a tapestry of themes spanning music, feminism, the rise and decline of religion, Herman Melville, Charles Darwin, the history of science, and how the intersection of astronomy, and Transcendentalist philosophy fomented the environmental movement.

Figuring #ad - Grove. Simon Schuster. Figuring explores the complexities of love and the human search for truth and meaning through the interconnected lives of several historical figures across four centuries—beginning with the astronomer Johannes Kepler, and ending with the marine biologist and author Rachel Carson, who discovered the laws of planetary motion, who catalyzed the environmental movement.
