Abstract:

These poems delve into the mysteries of early anatomical studies and medical illustrations and find there stories of women's lives, sometimes tragic, sometimes comic, as exposed as the drawings themselves. These meticulously researched and rendered poems become powerful testimonies to women's bodies objectified and misunderstood throughout history. Miller's sensuous and harrowing fifth collection brings a new truth to what she calls the strange collusion of imaginary science and real art.
