The Spirit Level: Poems.
by [Poetry] Heaney, Seamus.
Farrar, Straus, & Giroux,
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. In The Spirit Level, as ever with Seamus 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.
