Diane Seuss Presents: Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks & a Girl

Diane Seuss

Join poet Diane Seuss for the release of her new poetry collection, STILL LIFE WITH TWO DEAD PEACOCKS AND A GIRL. The collection takes its title from Rembrandt’s painting, a dark emblem of femininity, violence, and the viewer’s own troubled gaze. In Diane Seuss’s new collection, the notion of the still life is shattered and Rembrandt’s painting is presented across the book in pieces—details that hide more than they reveal until they’re assembled into a whole.
