Eavan Boland’s Dublin – visit the exhibition online

This week sees the official launch of a new website: A Poet’s Dublin – Eavan Boland (https://apoetsdublin.wordpress.com/).

The website has been designed to complement and extend two earlier initiatives that celebrate the poet’s seventieth birthday: a book Eavan Boland – A Poet’s Dublin, edited by Paula Meehan and Jody Allen Randolph and an exhibition at ILLUMINATIONS, the digital gallery at NUI Maynooth, curated by Jody Allen Randolph and Moynagh Sullivan.  The website features twelve poems with corresponding photographs and three prose pieces, recordings of the poet reading her work, and commentary from writers and critics.

The website, compiled by ILLUMINATIONS curator Colin Graham, is an invaluable resource and an example of all that’s good about the internet. It brings together text, recorded readings and commentary along with photos taken by the poet; and it’s freely available 24/7, anywhere in the world with an internet connection.  Take advantage of it.

Eavan Boland – A Poet’s Dublin is published by Carcanet
