Outside History, 1980-1990: Selected Poems

Outside History, 1980-1990: Selected Poems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of Ireland's most gifted poets, a book of new and selected poems from the last ten years and her first major selection to be published in this country.

Review:

"Eavan Boland is the real thing. I marvel at the skill and imagination behind these ravishing poems." James Merrill

Review:

"Eavan Boland's poems have been appearing here and there, tantalizing us with their rich, evocative music, the wisdom of their 'camomile glow.' What a pleasure to have them gathered together here where they can reach the large American audience they so clearly deserve." Linda Pastan

Review:

"Eavan Boland is a marvelous poet, and Outside History is the best possible introduction to her work. Love and anxiety, memories and mysteries — she's woven them all into a rich verse fabric, thrown like a flowered shawl over her shoulders as she stands out under the chilling night sky, no other soul around but (for that haunting moment) the reader's own." J.D. McClatchy
