He was after the eternal laws that govern the harmony of the world Through awful thickets in darkest night he stalked his fabulous prey Only the stealthiest of hunters had been vouchsafed a shot at it and he grossly armed with the blunderbuss of his defective mathematics what chance had he crowded round by capering clowns hallooing and howling and banging their bells whose names were Paternity and Responsibility and Domestgoddamnedicity Yet O he had seen it once briefly that mythic bird a speck no than a speck soaring at an immense height It was not to be forgotten that glimpse In renaissance

read Kepler author John Banville John Banville ☆ 3 free read summary ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ John Banville D astronomers The author of this book uses this history as a background to his novel writing a. As the title implies this is historical fiction about the famous mathematician and astronomer Johannes Keppler Banville brings his signature precision of language and gift for creating character and atmosphere to this novel I can not evaluate the historical accuracy of the story since I knew nothing of Keppler s personal life and only the most basic highlights of his professional achievements But I enjoyed this uniue subject
