"Eavan Boland's first Collected Poems confirmed her place at the forefront of modern Irish poetry. New Collected Poems brings the record of her achievement up to date, adding The Lost Land (1998) and Code (2001) and reproducing all her earlier collections in their entirety, together with two key poems from 23 Poems (1962) and an excerpt from her unpublished 1971 play 'Femininity and Freedom'. Following the chronology of publication, the reader experiences the development of a poet writing in a space she has cleared by critical engagement and experiment with form, theme, and language."--BOOK JACKET.

Review: New Collected Poems

User Review  - Joan - Goodreads

A wonderful contempory female Irish Poet. If you haven't read any of her work I highly recommend her new and collected poems which contain poems from her various other books. She is the type of poet that once you read her work, you want to tell the world about her. Read full review
