Summary
Selected poems by the Nobel Prizewinning Irish poet are taken from Heaney's twelve previous collections and includes work published since 1987. This volume gathers the landmark poems from the poets twelve previous collections, & brings the reader up to date with the work published since 1987. Annotation.

The book closes with Heaney's Nobel Lecture: "Crediting Poetry
