RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 28853914 LA English T1 In a time of violence A1 Boland, Eavan., PB Norton PP New York YR 1994 SN 0393036170 9780393036176 0393312984 9780393312980 AB 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."
