The poems in Eavan Boland’s new collection seek out the delicate intersections between generation, identity, and the deep losses inflicted by history on those who can bear them least. Exploring questions of inheritance (from mother to daughter, from generation to generation), the poems look closely at the ways in which we construct one another, and the ways in which – even without country, or settled identity – a legacy of connection and consolation can endure.
