In this collection, as ever with Heaney, personal memory and humble domestic objects — a whitewash brush, a sofa, a swing — are endowed with talismanic significance, and throughout the collection he addresses his growing concerns, which inevitably include the political situation in his native Northern Ireland, in a poetry that never ceases to be fluid, alert, and completely truthful.
