5.0 out of 5 stars Years of Joy 7 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
There is an awful lot here and you are not going to get through it in many months, 2-5 poems at a time max 2 times a day is enough. Heaney is a towering figure and is to be highly commended in producing such a record of his work. I have early recordings from the radio of some of these poems and some have a certain youthful zest that these versions lack but I have no regrets. A tremendous boxed set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collected Poems of Seamus Heaney 7 Aug 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I do not live and breathe poetry but I've been a fan of Mr. Heaney for some time. If you have ever wanted an introduction to modern Irish poetry Mr. Heaney is a good place to start. When you decide you need to delve deepen into his work this collection is a must.

His poems reflect his and Ireland's last 70 years without a strident tone; all spoken in his mellow northern Irish accent. The poems can be direct, they twist, they juxtapose, they are life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heaney's voice... 18 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
...comes through very well in these recordings. I had an inkling I would like them, because I suspected the voice would be familiar to me, well it is and I do. Irish and rural, a picture is presented and a story is told, in the compact package of a poem. It's amazing really, really amazing amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars He can read and write! 11 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
So many poets are such poor performers of their work that one may approach this hefty set with understandable apprehension. But Heaney is the exception that proves the rule: he reads his poems as brilliantly as he writes them--which is to say very well indeed and with just the right emotion and nuance. It's as if he wrote them himself!
