The poems in Eavan Boland's new collection seek out the delicate intersections between generation, identity, and the deep losses inflicted by history on those who can bear them least. Exploring questions of inheritance (from mother to daughter, from generation to generation), the poems look closely at the ways in which we construct one another, and the ways in which - even without country, or settled identity - a legacy of connection and consolation can endure.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Eavan Boland is a major Irish poet, a great seeker, and her new book is a determined mission to bring the past out of the shadows, to lift up images, record words, in a lyric battle against omissions and erasures, recorded history, the ruthlessness of time. She is a necessary singer.--Edward Hirsch
Eavan Boland's poems have an edgy precision, an uncanny sympathy and warmth, an unsettling sense of history. Her heart-stopping memories--bitter or poignant or loving--become our own. This is her best book--an astonishment, a treasure.--J. D. McClatchy
