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 life that Heaney does.' John Banville 'More than any other poet since Wordsworth he can make us understand that the outside world is not outside, but what we are made of.' John Carey… (més)

Beautiful and boggy. ( )

I haven't read everything in here but I've read quite a lot. They're not bad, they're just not for me. I'm not a huge fan of poetry anyway and Heaney's poems are just all too similar, almost feels like I'm reading the same thing dozens of times. ( )

I had not read any new poetry to speak of in many, many years. More fool I. Seamus Heaney was the Real Thing; he takes his place among my top echelon, with Yeats, Frost, and Herbert. I cannot overstate my enthusiasm for this book; I will be going out immediately to find the rest of Heaney's work.

One thing that strikes me forcibly about the early poems in this volume is how much they are rooted in the Old English and Old Norse tradition. I have barely scratched the surface of commentary on Heaney's work, but I suspect this is widely overlooked due to a journalistic preoccupation with Ireland and its Troubles -- which is obviously a central subject. The metric form of the early work, with its two-stress half-lines is derived from the traditional Germanic verse form, though the alliteration is mainly dropped. Heaney openly acknowledges this in "Bone Dreams," where he writes of "pushing back"

to the scop's
twang, the iron
flash of consonants
cleaving the line.


And the poems are full of allusions to Norse saga and Old English literature -- I am fortunate enough to have the background to pick up those references, I would love to be able to help those who don't.

Several of these poems are now very familiar to Irish schoolchildren—"Digging", for example, and the moving "Mid Term Break." Some of these poems—to with Irish history, landscape, the good and bad aspects of living in a close-knit rural community—I found really wonderful and spoke to my own experiences growing up. Heaney has a real gift for striking imagery, and his language begs to be read aloud. Other poems were more opaque to me, and even after working at them I'm not sure that I really understood what Heaney was trying to get at. Still, taken as a whole this is a collection well worth reading. ( )

"In the nineteen forties, when I was the eldest child of an ever-growing family in rural Co. Derry, we crowded together in the three rooms of a traditional thatched farmstead and lived a kind of den-life which was more or less emotionally and intellectually proofed against the outside world. It was an intimate, physical, creaturely existence in which the night sounds of the horse in the stable beyond one bedroom wall mingled with the sounds of adult conversation from the kitchen beyond the other. We took in everything that was going on, of course - rain in the trees, mice on the ceiling, a steam train rumbling along the railway line one field back from the house - but we took it in as if we were in the doze of hibernation. Ahistorical, pre-sexual, in suspension between the archaic and the modern, we were as susceptible and impressionable as the drinking water that stood in a bucket in our scullery: every time a passing train made the earth shake, the surface of that water used to ripple delicately, concentrically, and in utter silence."
