Eavan Boland

poet
Born: 9/24/1944
Birthplace: Dublin, Ireland

The daughter of an Irish diplomat, Boland spent much of her youth living in London and New York City. One of Ireland's few recognized women poets, Boland addresses broad issues of Irish national identity as well as the specific issues confronting women and mothers in a culture that has traditionally ignored their experiences. Her collections of poems include In Her Own Image (1980), Night Feed (1982), Outside History (1990), In a Time of Violence (1994). She has also written a prose memoir, Object Lessons: The Life of the Woman and the Poet in Our Time (1995).
