Evening reading: Eavan Boland
The Great Book of Ireland features poetic texts from some of Ireland’s leading writers.
The Great Book of Ireland features poetic texts from some of Ireland’s leading writers. Throughout the exhibition, the Glucksman will host free public readings by some of the contributing poets to celebrate the many voices collected in the manuscript. Eavan Boland was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1944. Though still a student when she published her first collection, 23 Poems (1962), Boland’s early work is informed by her experiences as a young wife and mother, and her growing awareness of the troubled role of women in Irish history and culture. Over the course of her long career, Eavan Boland has emerged as one of the foremost female voices in Irish literature. Throughout her many collections of poetry, in her prose memoir Object Lessons (1995), and in her work as a noted anthologist and teacher, Boland has honed an appreciation for the ordinary in life.
