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."

An Origin Like Water: Poems 1967-1987 confirmed Eavan Boland's place at the forefront of modern Irish poetry. New Collected Poems now brings the record of her achievement up to date, adding material from her subsequent volumes and filling out key poems from the early years. Following the chronology of publication, the reader experiences the exhilarating sense of development, now incremental, now momentous. Boland's work traces a measured process of emancipation from conventions and stereotypes, writing now in a space she has cleared not by violent rejection, but by dialogue, critical engagement, and patient experimentation with form, theme, and language. --W.W.
