Marilyn Chandler McEntyre *84 (William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company)
The poems in this volume are meditations on 21 paintings — whose images included — created during Van Gogh’s final, “spiritually strenuous years.” McEntrye shows how these artworks testify to divine presence, and she invites readers to find their way through form, color, and light into a new awareness of the Spirit. McEntyre is a professor of English at Westmont College, Santa Barbara, Calif.
