Domestic Violence


Eavan Boland (Author, Stanford University)

Overview | Formats

A celebrated collection from "one of the finest and boldest poets of the last half century" (Poetry Review).

These are poems about the charged spaces in which people live, about the interiors where seductions, quarrels, memories, and griefs occur. A marriage is a window for outward violence; a painted cup becomes a theater for a long love; in an ordinary room a mythic violation takes place.
