"A book as original, startling and aesthetically compelling as any since his magisterial 1984 sequence, "Station Island". " --"The Washington Post Book World""" "[Heaney's] voice carries the authenticity and believability of the plainspoken--even though (herein his magic) his words are anything but plainspoken. His stanzas are dense echo chambers of contending nuances and ricocheting sounds. And his is the gift of saying something extraordinary while, line by line, conveying a sense that this is something an ordinary person might actually say." --Brad Leithauser, "The New York Times Book Review"
District and Circle, by Seamus Heaney, has become one of the most celebrated volumes of poetry from the Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet, once again reaffirming his ability to write some of the most serious and the most tender poetry of which English language is capable.See all Product Description

Some of my favourite poems in this collection include: The Lift, Nonce Words, In Iowa, Quitting Time and The Blackbird of Glanmore.
This is not just a book to read, it is also a book to re-read and think about and absorb.
this collection has recently been described as 'exhilarating' by judges which awarded the t. s. eliot award 2006 to it, which celebrates the pinnacle of poetry. dark and mysterious, yet accessible and relevant; this book is essential.
