  • 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."

    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...

  • District and Circleby Seamus Heaney

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 14.99

    Seamus Heaney's new collection starts "In an age of bare hands and cast iron" and ends as "The automatic lock / clunks shut" in the eerie new conditions of a menaced twenty-first century. In their haunted, almost visionary clarity, the poems assay the weight and worth of what has been held in the hand and in the memory. Images out of a childhood spent... more...
