Reviews

"Collected lectures and reviews by the gifted Irish poet Seamus Heaney . . . dealing intimately with composition as an act of mind more profound than mere rhetoric, and showing how the circumstances of composition extend to the most urgent, painful historical questions." --Robert Pinsky, The New York Times Book Review

"We should feel privileged when a poet admits us to his workshop, as Seamus Heaney seems to do in Preoccupations." --John Montague, The Guardian
