Item Description...
A wonderful collection of poetry inspired by Vermeer's famous portraits. Although the paintings of Jan Vermeer continue to be celebrated, very little is known about the painter himself, and still less about the women he painted. Who were they? What were their lives like? What thoughts, dreams, and desires might they yield up if we take the time to truly look at them? In this elegant volume Marilyn Chandler McEntyre asks these very questions, and she teases out intriguing possibilities in twenty poems arranged side by side with color reproductions of the paintings that inspired them. McEntyre has chosen eighteen of Vermeer's famous women, including The Lacemaker, The Milkmaid, Girl with a Pearl Earring, and The Girl with a Red Hat, to wonder about. Rich with imagined detail, these poems each invite the reader to take a closer look at Vermeer's portraits, to celebrate not only Vermeer's artistry but also the significance of the women themselves. McEntyre thoughtfully imagines the personal lives of these women and attempts to capture what Vermeer himself saw in them, a contemplative exercise that illuminates the presence of grace in the ordinary moments of life. A wonderful blend of art and poetry, this volume offers a unique aesthetic experience for personal reflection.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A magical light caught by brush and pen.....  Nov 17, 2001
DO read this book, and buy copies for gifts! The beauty of Vermeer's paintings as reproduced and explored here can cause a heartquake. This book is ALL beauty: light and shadow, personalities revealed, meditation illuminated.

Will you find 'your' favorite painting, or discover a new one? "In Quiet Light" draws the reader into a communion of like minds similar to that experienced in Quaker meeting. The author, Marilyn Chandler McEntyre, imagines lives lonelier than mine has been; yet there is suggested serenity and self-control, with a hint of subterfuge, in the women described by paints and words.

If I could share a book with a dozen friends, "In Quiet Light" would be my choice this year.

Wow!  Jan 4, 2001
This coupling of poetry with painting is as natural as putting words to music. The inner light of the subjects' humanity becomes as palpable as the soft light that fills Vermeer's paintings. Wonderful!
