Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The second book of an extravagant work-in-progress

What's Joel

Got to do but let the jewel

Hatch

The light and hook

It to the flesh

It will outlast

And point the staring woman

At a mirror?

--from "The Master Jeweler Joel Rosenthal"

Dante's Divine Comedy begins with a journey through Hell and ends in Heaven. Frederick Seidel's trilogy The Cosmos Poems begins in the heavens and descends.

Life on Earth is the second book in this trilogy. It includes natural and human history, which are the history of the self, and biography, which is the history of everything else, told in vignettes of beauty, sublimity, horror, and regret.
