Engaging the same rhythmic propulsion established in her first book, Cheryl Pallant's Into Stillness offers a compelling meditation on the sacredness of the body in the shadow of atrocity. Her kinetic poetry swirls historical fragments with dream, memory, flesh, violence, humor and ecstasy. In proselike poems that surprise linguistically with their twists of meaning, Into Stillness explores the tension between self and other, existence and death, the word and its silence.
Cheryl Pallant is a poet, writer, dancer and performance artist. She teaches in the English and Dance & Choreography Departments of Virginia Commonwealth University. She has served as the Performance Art Guide at, and is also the author of Uncommon Grammar Cloth (Barrytown/Station Hill Press).
