Reviews

"Seamus Heaney is one of the most admired poets writing in English to have emerged in the last 20 years, and if you open 'Station Island' almost anywhere you will soon see why. Powerful images; compelling rhythms; a distinctive palette; phrases packed tight with meaning - Mr. Heaney has all the primary gifts of a poet." --The New York Times

"Striking." --Publishers Weekly
