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 volume Heaney’s outstanding gifts, his eye, his ear, his understanding of the poetic language are on display – this is a book we cannot do without.’ Martin Dodsworth, Guardian
