Soft cover. 70 pp. A few light spots of rubbing, else in fine condition. This is Heaney's first book of poems after winning the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature. It comes five years after his most recent collection, Seeing Things, which was described by reviewers as a 'triumph' and a 'masterpiece,' and shows both the poet's alert response to new political realities and his continuing concern with matters of family history and spiritual well-being.
