The Illuminations

Buy <em>The Illuminations,</em> by Mary Kay Rummel

The Illuminations is a meditation on how the spirit and the body exist both in opposition and together. Ranging across history and sacred texts, Mary Kay Rummel examines “the flesh and the blood and the bread of it,” of everything that is both soul and flesh.

Mary Kay Rummel, much like some 8th century Irish scribe, perched on a high bench near a window, has not only observed the ever-changing light of the world, she has pressed her ear to the thalo blue lips of Heaven and made her own luminous manuscript, fantastical and full of music.
