Product description

Book Description

Field Work by Seamus Heaney is further affirmation of the Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet's pre-eminence in both the depth and immediacy that poetry is able to offer: 'I ate the day / Deliberately, that its tang / Might quicken me all into verb, pure verb.'


At the centre of this collection, which includes groups of elegies and love poems, there is a short sonnet sequence that concentrates themes apparent elswehere in the book: individual responsibility for choices; the artist's commitment to his vocation; the vulnerability of all in the face of death.
