What Euclid?s Third Axiom Neglects to Mention about Circles (White Pine Press Poetry Prize #18) (Paperback)
Carolyn Moore is a poet whose lyrics, meditations, and elegies use language from geology, botany, and mathematics to explore the human condition. She uses the conventions of contemporary poetry with confidence, but much of the lyricism comes from a vocabulary from scientific categories that is not often used. However, these poems share a deep faith in the power of poetry to connect a life in science, the complexities of family, recognition of desire and suffering to a passion for words.--Patricia Spears Jones
Carolyn Moore has published four chapbooks. She now works from the last vestige of the family farm in Tigard, Oregon.
