Opened Ground: Selected Poems, 1966-1996 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As selected by the author, Opened Ground includes the essential work from Heaney's twelve previous books of poetry, as well as new sequences drawn from two of his landmark translations, The Cure at Troy and Sweeney Astray, and several previously uncollected poems. Heaney's voice is like no other--"by turns mythological and journalistic, rural and sophisticated, reminiscent and impatient, stern and yielding, curt and expansive" (Helen Vendler, The New Yorker)--and this is a one-volume testament to the musicality and precision of that voice. The book closes with Heaney's Nobel Lecture: "Crediting Poetry."

Synopsis:

The definitive choice of the Nobel laureate's best poems, bringing the reader up to date with the work Heaney has published since 1987.

About the Author
