About the Author
Seamus Heaney (1939-2013) received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995. His poems, plays, translations, and essays include Opened Ground, Electric Light, Beowulf, The Spirit Level, District and Circle, and Finders Keepers. Robert Lowell praised Heaney as the most important Irish poet since Yeats.
Reviews

"[Heaney's] approach to poetry--sensitive but tolerant, and attentive to beauty above all--suffuses Finders Keepers. It will delight those who have come to love Heaney's own rich and humane verse." --Adam Kirsch, The Boston Globe

"A collection of Heaney's biographical reminiscences and frequently rhapsodic but meticulous critical essays. Heaney's is a lifelong romance with words." --Christina Cho, The New York Times Book Review

"[Heaney's] critical prose can be as impassioned and as musical as the verse he's explicating...Heaney takes us to those places where we can find the genuine consolation that literature can provide." --Charles Matthews, The Seattle Times
