    I love that this book is wildly different from the most recent collections I've read (Tamara Madison's Moraine and Carly Joy Miller's Ceremonial--as those two are wildly different from each other, as well). But there are things that also echo those books as well, especially Madison's m...

    In this poetry collection, Seuss examines pieces of art, often still life paintings, and relates them to the varied experiences of every day life in our modern world. Pictures of sadness and struggle are forged from observations on famous art and artists. A moving collection. ...

    Seuss' poetry is compelling to say the least. "Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl" isn't just about ekphrasis, although there is quite a bit of it in the collection. Seuss certainly takes bits and pieces from art history, and from still lives in particular, to rearrange the p...

    STILL LIFE WITH TWO DEAD PEACOCKS AND A GIRL is the memento mori of twenty-first century America, ?like greeters at Walmart who are there to remind us that we, too, / will be greeters at Walmart.? Diane Seuss takes us by the hand and leads us through the paintings of Drer and Pol...

    These poems are dense the way a child's summer's day is dense?bittersweet and infinite, full of discovery and loss. Truly a wonderful collection. ...

    Seuss, in STILL LIFE WITH TWO DEAD PEACOCKS AND A GIRL, dares to attempt the reconciliation of the quotidian and the sublime. That endeavor means the collection is inherently courageous; the fact that it succeeds at such a feat makes it a revelatory one. In ambitious, music-driven line...
