Weaving elements of philosophy, mathematics and the sciences into her experience of the social and natural world, Emily Grosholz writes wise and cosmopolitan poetry of high lyricism. The Stars of Earth begins with new poems chronicling the months of a year lived and observed, followed by selections from Grosholz’s previous volumes in chronological order. This collection spans four decades of her work and is Emily Grosholz's eighth book of poetry. Since 1979 she has taught at the Pennsylvania State University, where she is now Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Philosophy, African American Studies, and English. Her first book of poetry, The River Painter, appeared in 1984; her most recent book, Childhood, has been translated into Japanese, Italian and French, and has raised $2500 for UNICEF. Great Circles: The Transits of Mathematics and Poetry, will be published in 2018 by Springer.
