    1. Jessa lent me this book years and years ago I picked it up this summer as I suspected it might be on the short list of books she would want to take with her to Germany she s mentioned Boland a few times as an author whose work it is difficult to find in the United States.Anyway, I enjoyed this poetry well enough, Boland is clearly a very accomplished writer However, I felt that I was really missing most of it Much of Boland s earlier poems were based heavily on mythology and traditional stories [...]


    2. Of course I think this book of poetry is worth reading I only spent hundreds of hours writing a thesis about this author and Seamus Heaney.
