profile of E.O.Wilson, the famed scientist. I actually don't know that much about him personally, so reading about what his workspace and childhood was interesting.
I encountered Wilson in a biology class several years ago, and I was instantly smitten with his writing style. Science is usually considered dry and boring, but I've always felt there was something wondrous about it. Wilson's writing has always done a good job at capturing that wonder, which is the first thing I feel in love with.
Wilson has recently published fiction, and he's well-known for his nonfiction, but I am curious to see Wilson the poet. His sense of wonder would be wonderful for poetry.
