Praise for Quartet for J. Robert Oppenheimer: A Poem

“As a poetic biography, Kelly Cherry’s “Quartet for J. Robert Oppenheimer” is a stunning tribute to one of America’s most significant scientists. As Cherry traces the life of Oppenheimer, she compels us to consider not only our condition as human beings but our responsibility to each other and our world. Cherry’s work is a remarkable achievement.”
