A collection of poems exploring "the unspoken." To paraphrase The Parcel: "There are dying arts and one of them is the way my mother used to make up a parcel. Paper first, mid-brown and coarse, then the scissors, not a glittering let-up, but a dour pair. Ball of twine, flame, sealing wax, melted and spread into a brittle terracotta medal. Names and places, crayon and fountain pen, town underlined once, country twice. It's ready for the post."
Object lessons : the life of the woman and the poet in our time by Eavan Boland ( Book )

In this important prose work, one of our major poets explores, through autobiography and argument, a woman's life in Ireland together with a poet's work. Eavan Boland beautifully uncovers the powerful drama of how these lives affect one another; how the tradition of womanhood and the historic vocation of the poet act as revealing illuminations of the other. Included are autobiographical pieces about a woman living in Ireland, about a grandmother, a childhood. In the second section, Boland details the part of the life in which the vocation of the poet meets the life of the woman.
