About the Author:

Seamus Heaney received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995.

Review:

“Seamus Heaney is one of the most admired poets writing in English to have emerged in the last 20 years, and if you open 'Station Island' almost anywhere you will soon see why. Powerful images; compelling rhythms; a distinctive palette; phrases packed tight with meaning - Mr. Heaney has all the primary gifts of a poet.” ―The New York Times

“Striking.” ―Publishers Weekly

Book Description Farrar, Strauss Giroux-3pl, 1986. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The title poem of this collection, Seamus Heaney s first after Field Work (1979), is set on an island that has been a site of pilgrimage in Ireland for over a thousand years. Heaney s pilgrim is on an inner journey and proceeds through a series of dream encounters which lead him back into the world that formed him, and then forward to face the crises of the present. Writing in The Washington Post Book World, Hugh Kenner called this narrative sequence as fine a long poem as we ve had in fifty years. It is preceded by a section of richly meditative lyrics ( Wry, spare, compressed, subtle, strange, they have a furtive intensity and exicitement. - Richard Ellmann, The New York Review of Books ), and leads naturally into a third group of poems, in which the poet s voice is at one with the voice of the legendary Sweeney, a king of Ulster whose story Heaney translated from the Irish.
