Reviews - What do customers think about Opalescence?

Book Review - Stephen Meats, Editor The Midwest Quarterly  Feb 23, 2005
"In Opalescence, Judith Skillman blends the two arts of poetry writing and stained-glass making into a powerful and highly original book. As the stained glass artisan, for her art, endures the injuries that heat and the cutting edges of glass and metal can inflict, so Skillman endures the pain of exploring the obscure recesses of her personal past within a web of historical, mythical, and biblical allusions that weave through the book holding it together as the web of lead cames weaves through and holds together a piece of stained glass. In these poems, she shores the fragments of memory and emotion against the sure oblivion of the future, just as the stained glass artisan assembles a luminous mosaic from an apparent chaos of glass shards. In Opalescence, Judith Skillman lets us see through her to ourselves, not as through a glass darkly, but with glorious light."

Stephen Meats, Poetry Editor, The Midwest Quarterly, Pittsburg State
