A modern classic Einsteins Dreams is a fictional collage of stories dreamed by Albert Einstein in 1905 about time relativity and physics As the defiant but sensitive young genius is creating his theory of relativity a new conception of time he imagines many possible worlds In one time is circular so that people are fated to repeat triumphs and failures over and over In another there is a place where time stands still visited by lovers and parents clinging to their children In another time is a nightingale sometimes trapped by a bell jar Now translated into thirty languages Einsteins Dreams has inspired playwrights dancers musicians and painters all over the world In poetic vignettes it explores the connections between science and art the process of creativity and ultimately the fragility of human existence
