Poetry. Inspired by the poet's experience as an artist's model, WHAT STILLNESS ILLUMINATED is a kaleidoscope of mysterious tableaux vivants. Composed entirely of five-line poems, the book offers glimpses of individuals in moments of flux or revelation and suggestions of lives altered. "As if in a dream, here a richly imagined film is made still, its images and sounds slowed to a halt so that we can appreciate all of the different strands and their relation to each other. With these distillations Taub sheds new light on the dramatic potential of all of these languages, showing us what comes when they are seen, read, or heard next to each other"--Laura Levitt, author of American Jewish Loss after the Holocaust.
