The Senior Wrangler to His Bride: Being a Mathematical Madrigal in the Simplest Form



Song, Drollery


Mathematics, Education

    Explains a geometrical proposition to his bride, which concludes with him noting that 'Equal angles, so to term them, / Each one opposite its brother! / Equal joys and equal sorrows, / Equal hopes, 'twere sin to smother. / Equal—oh divine extatics— / Based on HUTTON's mathematics!' The last is a reference to Hutton 1798.
