"More than any poet since Wordsworth he can make us understand that the outside world is not outside, but what we are made of." (John Carey, Sunday Times)
I could not return this book. This is the first book from audible i'm unhappy with, and it's not Seamus Heaney's fault. It's just that it sounds like it was recorded from a cassette.. badly
Why is it not eligible for return?
I may not renew audible sub based on this experience of their return policy.. turns out none of the books in my library are returnable..
It's always a joy to hear a poet read his own work, especially a poet as talented as Seamus Heaney. However, the sound quality on this brief recording is very poor. Heaney's powerful reading sounds muffled. Also, the book is marked as "2 hrs" but the recording is only 1 hour and 13 minutes. That's a lot closer to 1 hr than 2 hrs.
Heaney is an excellent poet, worth exploring in any medium!
