  • Northby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2014; US$ 8.99

In North , the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience,... more...

  • Seeing Thingsby Seamus Heaney

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 14.99

    Seeing Things (1991), as Edward Hirsch wrote in The New York Times Book Review , "is a book of thresholds and crossings, of losses balanced by marvels, of casting and gathering and the hushed, contrary air between water and sky, earth and heaven."

  • The Spirit Levelby Seamus Heaney

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 13.99

    In The Spirit Level , as ever with Seamus Heaney, personal memory and humble domestic objects -- a whitewash brush, a sofa, a swing -- are endowed with talismanic significance, and throughout the collection he addresses his growing concerns, which inevitably include the political situation in his native Northern Ireland, in a poetry that never ceases... more...

  • Station Islandby Seamus Heaney

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 14.99

    The title poem of this collection, set on an Irish island, tells of a pilgrim on an inner journey that leads him back into the world that formed him, and then forward to face the crises of the present.

    I dislike the idea of being a religious poet. I would prefer to be a poet for whom religious things mattered intensely.' In the poems collected in this book, Rowan Williams writes of many things. He visits the Holy Land, commemorates the deaths of parents and close friends, explores elements of ancient Celtic culture; poems are inspired by works of... more...

  • Collected Later Poemsby Christopher Middleton

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 18.23

    August Kleinzahler says, Christopher Middleton is, and remains, a shocking man. One hardly knows where to begin...' There are few risks Middleton will not take in his poems.

  • Missel-Childby Helen Tookey

  • Shelley: Poemsby Percy Bysshe Shelley

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2014; US$ 14.95

    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822) was perhaps the most intellectually adventurous of the great Romantic poets.  A classicist, a headlong visionary, a social radical, and a poet of serene artistry with a lyric touch second to none, Shelley personified the richly various?and contradictory?energies of his time. This compact yet comprehensive collection... more...
