Book Title: Arcadia

Author: Tom Stoppard

Book Description:

I have been fortunate to see this play performed several times. There are so many ideas in it -- about math, science, history, literature - I discover something new in it each time I see it. And it is very funny too! I also admire how so many of the characters are engaged in the pursuit of knowledge (like ourselves here at the university). As the play says: "It's wanting to know that makes us matter. Otherwise we're going out the way we came in."
