“Boland offers encouragement to women poets of the future. . . . Her vivid imagery will beguile many.”―Publishers Weekly, starred review

These inspiring essays from the celebrated poet Eavan Boland are both critical and deeply personal, revealing the adventure, passion, and struggle of becoming a woman poet. In this thematic sequel to her classic Object Lessons, Boland traces her own experiences as a woman, wife, and mother and their effect on her poetry, and she looks to a world where she can change the poetic past as well as the present.

About the Author:

Eavan Boland is the author of more than a dozen volumes of poetry and nonfiction. A professor and the director of the creative writing program at Stanford University, she is the winner of a Lannan Foundation Award. She lives in Stanford, California, and Dublin, Ireland.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Acclaimed Irish poet Boland (Domestic Violence) uses "autobiography and analysis" to trace the making of poets, poems, readers, and their communities. One map reflects her belief that how we read or write a poem is an ever-changing process not rooted in a single point of time but a relationship to the "poetic past." The second charts the poet's need to change that past. Sketches of women poets from Puritan Anne Bradstreet to Denise Levertov, the sole woman of the 1960s Black Mountain School, lead to a concluding "Letter to a Young Woman Poet," describing Boland's struggle to create poems from her life as a mother. Asserting "the strengths that exist in the communal life of women," Boland offers encouragement to women poets of the future. If some of her language is directed to those writing or reading poetry, her vivid imagery ("if this were a summer darkness in Ireland the morning would already be stored in the midnight") will beguile many. (Apr.)
