Overview and metadata sections
Born in 1944 in Dublin, but spending her youth in London and New York, Eavan Aisling Boland began producing poetry in the 1960s. She gained greater prominence in the 1980s with works which generated debate over feminism and the place of the female poet in a largely male field. Boland is known for placing women within the context of patriarchal Irish traditions and myths.
