100 Poems

Hardback, 28/06/2018, €14.85
Seamus Heaney had the idea to form a personal selection of poems from across the entire arc of his writing life, small yet comprehensive enough to serve as an introduction for all comers. But now, finally, the project has been returned to, resulting in an intimate gathering of poems chosen and introduced by the Heaney family.

Seeing Things

Paperback, 03/06/1991, €14.85
This collection of Seamus Heaney's work, especially in the series of 12-line poems entitled "Squarings", shows he is ready to re-imagine experience and "to credit marvels". The title poem is typical in that it begins with memories of an actual event, then moves towards the visionary.

More than any other poet since Wordsworth, the author can make us understand that the outside world is not outside, but what we are made of.

Human Chain

Paperback, 02/06/2011, €14.85
Elicits continuities and solidarities, between husband and wife, child and parent, inside an intently remembered present - the stepping stones of the day, the weight and heft of what is passed from hand to hand, lifted and lowered. This title broaches larger questions of transmission, as lifelines to the inherited past.

A collection of poems from the winner of the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature. The poems discover the possibility of a new beginning in many subjects and circumstances.
