About the Author:

Seamus Heaney was born in 1939 in Northern Ireland. His award-winning books of poetry include The Haw Lantern (FSG, 1987), Seeing Things (FSG, 1991), and The Spirit Level (FSG, 1996). A resident of Dublin, he has taught at Oxford and Harvard.

Review:

“Collected lectures and reviews by the gifted Irish poet Seamus Heaney . . . dealing intimately with composition as an act of mind more profound than mere rhetoric, and showing how the circumstances of composition extend to the most urgent, painful historical questions.” ?Robert Pinsky, The New York Times Book Review

“We should feel privileged when a poet admits us to his workshop, as Seamus Heaney seems to do in Preoccupations.” ?John Montague, The Guardian
