About this title

Synopsis:

The Nobel laureate shares his thoughts on poetry's special ability to rectify spiritual balance as a counterweight to hostile and oppressive forces, in a collection of ten lectures on the work of such diverse poets as Christopher Marlowe, John Clare, Oscar Wilde, and Elizabeth Bishop.

Review:

From the recipient of the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature comes a collection of essays based on lectures he delivered while Professor of Poetry at Oxford. The great Irish poet delivers wisdom about his craft in a style full of humor and devoid of pedantry. With his expansive spirit, Heaney examines poets such as Brian Merriman, Oscar Wilde, Dylan Thomas and, of course, William Butler Yeats. The Redress of Poetry is a rare opportunity to enter the lecture hall and learn from a master.
