Abstract / Synopsis

In early 2015, the Mathematics-Literature Creativity Award was offered through competition for technological and vocational college students in Taiwan. This paper focuses on the two winning works, the poem Parabola and the flash-fiction, Love Letters of a Science Student, by analyzing the mathematical notions involved and their uses to enhance literary expression. The introduction surveys briefly the various ways of combining mathematics and literature in a piece of creative writing that enriches and supports communication in both disciplines.
