A Woman Without a Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Woman Without a Country free pdf Eavan Boland is considered "one of the finest and boldest poets of the last half century" by Poetry Review. This stunning new collection, A Woman Without a Country, looks at how we construct one another and how nationhood and history can weave through, reflect, and define the life of an individual. Themes of mother, daughter, and generation echo throughout these extraordinary poems, as they examine how-even without country or settled identity-a legacy of love can endure. From "Talking to my Daughter Late at Night" We have a tray, a pot of tea, a scone. This is the hour When one thing pours itself into another: The gable of our house stored in shadow. A spring planet bending ice Into an absolute of light. Your childhood ended years ago. There is No path back to it.
