Summary: Today there are many categories of mathematics literature, including fiction and poetry. This article describes Truth and Beauty: Mathematics in Literature, the course that the author developed and teaches. This course explores mathematical writings as well as the mathematics that inspired them, thereby imparting appreciation of mathematics, literature, and the connection between the two. Although developed as a college course, satisfying both a mathematics and a writing requirement, it could easily be adapted for high school by changing expectations as to mathematical and worldly maturity.
