Framed in SilenceFramed in Silence

Read a Poem from Framed in Silence

From the Reviews:

“Framed in Silence is full of daring energy. But even when exuberant, Domina’s base in the sciences keeps her firmly on the ground. In the pivotal poem “Orange Hybrid Magic,” she says “Facts enchant me,” and she, in turn, has the power to enchant us”—Tam Lin Neville, Salamander

“Lynn Domina’s second book, Framed in Silence, operates within the general spiritual tradition of Hopkins, yet she offers a vocabularly that readers are able to deconstruct and appreciate, and a theology concurrently progressive and rooted in tradition…Domina seems aware of the unique role of poet as practical theologian”—Nick Ripatrazone, Dappled Things

From the Reviews:

“In Domina’s lean verse, we get glimpses of thin, intensive slices of time which, although bearing intimations of the past and future, focus resolutely on the present…Her images and metaphors are innovative and thought-provoking,…her refusal to resolve complex issues simplistically and bluntly requires that the reader mull over the significance of her experience and expression”                    —John R. Black, Carolina Quarterly

“These poems, mythic in their reach, are appropriately characterized by a shadowy sense of mystery and a persuasive tone of objectivity”—Mary Jo Bang, Boston Review

“The reader never questions Domina’s sincerity or authority because she is in control of her language and interested in communicating clearly with her audience. Striking sensory details abound…Highly recommended for all collections”—B. Galvin, Choice

Poets on the Psalms

poets on the psalms

 From the Reviews:

Poets on the Psalms is a highly readable, accessible, and fascinating meditation on the Bible, God, and art that would be of interest to the general reader as well as the specialist. It’s recommended for public, academic and parish / synagogue collections”—Marie Cloutier, Catholic Library World

“Domina’s collection of essays is stimulating. A wide range of poets, topics, and perspectives is represented in these essays…Worth the read alone was the rediscovery that as a preacher I can employ with much greater effectiveness those psalms that voice emotions and concerns that I may be too timid to utter on my own”—Rick Stern, Homiletic

“The imaginative writing and challenging thinking in Poets on the Psalms yield rich rewards. I was drawn into every piece, and I have already re-read some—a single reading only begins to reveal all the ideas, images, questions, and surprises that are to be encountered. Poets on the Psalms engages heart and mind and opens many windows into the ancient treasure house that is the Psalms. May these essays be given the attention that they so richly deserve”—Linda Williams, Christian Feminism Today

“For most readers, the psalms are at once magnificent poetry and a source of intense spiritual depth. But it’s a rare treat to hear contemporary poets talk about why they of all people believe this is so. In her book Poets on the Psalms, poet Lynn Domina has done us all a service in collecting essays by contemporary poets…that guide us into the heart of the psalms through pathways that are personal and particular–never cliché”—Image Update

“You’ll agree with some writers and argue with others. I did. But you’ll find these gem-like moments that you’ll remember after the book is done”—David Crumm, Read the Spirit
