A collection of poems exploring "the unspoken." To paraphrase The Parcel: "There are dying arts and one of them is the way my mother used to make up a parcel. Paper first, mid-brown and coarse, then the scissors, not a glittering let-up, but a dour pair. Ball of twine, flame, sealing wax, melted and spread into a brittle terracotta medal. Names and places, crayon and fountain pen, town underlined once, country twice. It's ready for the post."

18 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eavan Boland confronts the challenges with which her situation, as an Irish poet and as a woman, presents her. Her writing and example are vitally enabling for young writers and readers; she traces a measured process of emancipation from conventions and stereotypes, writing now in a space she has cleared not by violent rejection, but by dialogue, critical engagement and patient experimentation with form, theme and language. Collected Poems includes her early collections New Territory, The War Horse and In Her Own Image, as well as her four Carcanet volumes."--BOOK JACKET

A poet's Dublin by Eavan Boland( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written over years, the transcendent and moving poems in A Poet?s Dublin seek out shadows and impressions of a powerful, historic city, studying how it forms and alters language, memory, and selfhood. The poems range from an evocation of the neighborhoods under the hills where the poet lived and raised her children to the inner-city bombing of 1974, and include such signature poems as “The Pomegranate,” “The War Horse,” and “Anna Liffey.” Above all, these poems weave together the story of a self and a city?private, political, and bound by history. The poems are supported by photographs of the city at all times and in all seasons: from dawn on the river Liffey, which flows through Dublin, to twilight up in the Dublin foothills. 45 photographs."--
