A wonderfully elegant and sensual writer, keenly attuned to the pleasures of form and sound.... She's as musically gifted and as uncompromisingly intelligent as Seamus Heaney, and deserves comparable attention." —David Walker, Field

What People are Saying About This

J. D. McClatchy

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.
