Ode to Numbers
contains poems written over a quarter of a century and
by mathematics and the author's life as a mathematician. The poems trace the story
of Sarah's life from early childhood in Europe to the forty years long research and
teaching career in mathematics in the United States. They respond, in turn, to students
and topics of the courses Sarah has taught, the colleagues she has worked with and
the research projects she has been involved in, the joys of professional travel, the
pleasures and difficulties facing a woman pursuing a career in mathematics,
and most of all, Sarah's life-long love of both mathematics and poetry.
From Antrim House Press Release:
In Ode to Numbers Sarah Glaz
has created a fascinating mixture of poetry and
in which each bespeaks the other. This is as passionate a book as it is erudite. Sarah Glaz
moves naturally between the visceral world of strong emotions and the mathematical
world of Commutative Rings.
