  • Northby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 15.49

    In North Seamus Heaney found a myth which allowed him to articulate a vision of Ireland - its people, history and landscape. Here the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience, and the idea of the north allows the poet to contemplate the violence on his home ground in relation to... more...

  • The Spirit Levelby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2009; US$ 13.12

    'An irresistibly coherent book which celebrates the rising and the raising of the human spirit.' Michael Hofmann, The Times 'If any poetry written today can have this 'redemptive effect' - as Heaney in his critical writing has begun to claim it can - then this is it.' Mick Imlah, Independent on Sunday more...

  • New Selected Poems 1966-1987by Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2009; US$ 20.41

    This volume contains a selection of work from each of Seamus Heaney's published books of poetry up to and including the Whitbread prize-winning collection, The Haw Lantern (1987). 'His is 'close-up' poetry - close up to thought, to the world, to the emotions. Few writers at work today, in verse or fiction, can give the sense of rich, fecund, lived... more...

  • Beowulfby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2009; US$ 13.99

    Composed towards the end of the first millennium, the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf is one of the great Northern epics and a classic of European literature. In his new translation, Seamus Heaney has produced a work which is both true, line by line, to the original poem, and an expression, in its language and music, of something fundamental to his own... more...

  • District and Circleby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2009; US$ 14.57

    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 twentieth-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... more...

  • The Testament of Cresseid & Seven Fablesby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2009; US$ 16.03

    The greatest of the late medieval Scottish makars , Robert Henryson wrote in Lowland Scots, a distinctive northern version of English. He was profoundly influenced by Chaucer's vision of the frailty and pathos of human life. His greatest poem, and one of the rhetorical masterpieces of the literature of these islands, is the narrative Testament of... more...

  • Station Islandby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 13.12

    The title poem from this collection is set on an island that has been a site of pilgrimage in Ireland for over a thousand years. A narrative sequence, it is an autobiographical quest concerned with 'the growth of a poet's mind'. The long poem is preceded by a section of shorter lyrics and leads into a third group of poems in which the poet's voice... more...

  • Seeing Thingsby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 14.57

    This collection of Seamus Heaney's work, especially in the vivid and surprising twelve-line poems entitled "Squarings", shows he is ready to re-imagine experience and "to credit marvels". The title poem, "Seeing Things", is typical of the whole book. It begins with memories of an actual event, then moves towards the visionary while never relinquishing... more...

  • Electric Lightby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 14.57

    Electric Light travels widely in time and space, visiting the sites of the classical world, revisiting the poet's childhood: rural electrification and the light of ancient evenings are reconciled within the orbit of a single lifetime. This is a book about origins (not least the origins of words) and oracles: the places where things start from, the... more...

  • Field Workby Seamus Heaney

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 14.57

    At the centre of this collection, which includes groups of elegies and love poems, there is a short sonnet sequence which concentrates themes apparent elsewhere in the book: the individual's responsibility for his own choices, the artist's commitment to his vocation, the vulnerability of all in the face of circumstance and death. 'Throughout the... more...
