Heaney

It’s a pity the names of each of the poems are not with the chapter numbers

Marvellous poetry read by the poet

Seamus Heaney reads his own early poetry. Wonderful poetry, beautifully read. What more can I say?

Close to the bone

Heaney's poetry sinks deep and touches nerves. I'm not a big poetry reader but this paints stories I can relate to.

What could be better than to hear Seamus Heaney reading his own poems, it brings tgem alive in a new way.
