I hope that the slightly abrasive title is forgivable, as the judgement on this poetry is not mine, but Hans Freudenthal's. Here is the background: in the Dictionary of Scientific Biography, there is an entry on Augustin-Louis Cauchy written by Freudenthal. It is an excellent biography, but there is one line in there which surprised me:
[Cauchy] also produced French and Latin poetry, which, however, is better forgotten.
Freudenthal was apparently quite interested in and well-read on the subject of poetry, so this judgement might well be sound -- but I'd like to find out for myself! I am unable to find any trace of this harshly sentenced poetry of Cauchy's online, so my question is precisely as stated in the title!
