The Earth Is Not Flat

Katharine Coles

Publication Year: 2013

In 2010, poet Katharine Coles sailed across the Drake Passage to spend a month at a tiny Antarctic science station under the auspices of the National Science Foundation's Antarctic Artists and Writers Program. The Earth Is Not Flat, the collection of poems written out of her adventure, invokes the vast land- and seascapes as well as the fauna - penguins, seals, whales, and scientists -she encountered along the way.
