520    This volume of poetry takes its title from Rembrandt's 
       painting, a dark emblem of femininity, violence, and the 
       viewer's troubled gaze. The collection shatters the notion
       of a still life, and presents the painting in pieces. With
       invention and irreverence, the poems escape their gilded 
       frames and overturn traditional representations of gender,
       class, and luxury. Details from this gallery of lives in 
       shards hide more than they reveal, like fragmented 
       memories, waiting until they are reassembled into a whole.
