A Journey with Two Maps. Becoming a Woman Poet. For Jody Allen Randolph. Therefore this book unfolds the idea of those two maps

A Journey with Two Maps. Therefore this book unfolds the idea of those two maps. I still believe many poets begin in fear and hope: fear that the poetic past will turn out to be a monologue rather than a conversation. And hope that their voice can be heard as that past turns into a future. The first map I followed included a detailed description of the past. The second one provided directions for the future of that voice, and for a new relation with that past.

A Journey with Two Maps book. This is a book of being and becoming  . The other is an re-evaluation of a variety of women poets. Both are fascinating reads and made me nostalgic for the luxury of being a student of literature. Jan 10, 2013 Alisa Books and Sequins rated it it was amazing. I was fascinated by how she unearthed her own development as a poet, and I loved how she wrote with so much feeling about the books and poets that meant so much to her.

attempts to rewrite history in a more fair and truthful manner. Boland's very personal experiences transpire into the journey of every reader of this book. Boland’s insights into Sylvia Plath and Elizabeth Bishop are exquisite. Boland’s criticism is spooky with hovering ghosts. The collection of her studies of woman poets in the second half of the book is one of the best I have ever come across. 5 people found this helpful.

An eloquent series of linked essays about the poetic enterprise from "one of the finest and boldest poets of the last half century" (Poetry Review).

"This is a book of being and becoming. It is about being a poet. It is also about the long process of becoming one," writes Eavan Boland. These inspiring essays are both critical and deeply personal, allowing the adventure, passion, and struggle of becoming a woman poet to be viewed from different perspectives. Boland traces her own experiences as a woman, wife, and mother and their effects on her poetry. In the opening essay, she explores the story of her mother, a painter, and her influence on Boland's own concepts of art and womanhood. She examines the work of women poets such as Adrienne Rich, Elizabeth Bishop, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Sylvia Plath, whose poetry provided light and guidance for her own work. And finally, in "Letter to a Young Woman Poet," she addresses an unseen young poet of the future, and looks to a world where this future artist can change the poetic past as well as the present.
