Description

“A poet at the peak of her power . . . one of Ireland’s greatest, and among the best writing in English anywhere.”—Booklist


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.
