[Poetry] Eliot, T.S.
The Waste Land and Other Poems.
A Near Fine copy with a previous owner name on the title page in Near Fine dust jacket. While recovering from a mental collapse in a Swiss sanitarium in 1921, T. S. Eliot finished what became the definitive poem of the modern condition, one that still casts a large and ominous shadow over twentieth-century poetry. Built upon the imagery of the Grail legend, the Fisher King, and ancient fertility cults, “The Waste Land” is both a poetic diagnosis of an ailing civilization and a desperate quest for spiritual renewal. Through pastiche and collage Eliot unfolds a nightmarish landscape of sexual disorder and spiritual desolation, inhabited by the voice (literary, historical, mythic, contemporary) of an unconscious that is at turns deeply personal and culturally collective. This edition includes “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” ““Gerontion,” and more.

[Poetry] Heaney, Seamus.
Seeing Things: Poetry.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Seeing Things (1991), as Edward Hirsch wrote in The New York Times Book Review, "is a book of thresholds and crossings, of losses balanced by marvels, of casting and gathering and the hushed, contrary air between water and sky, earth and heaven." Along with translations from the Aeneid and the Inferno, this book offers several poems about Seamus Heaney's late father.

[Poetry] Heaney, Seamus.
Station Island: Poetry.
A Very Good tight copy with a small damp stain to the rear board in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. The title poem of this collection, set on an Irish island, tells of a pilgrim on an inner journey that leads him back into the world that formed him, and then forward to face the crises of the present. Writing in The Washington Post Book World, Hugh Kenner called the narrative sequence in Seamus Heaney's Station Island "as fine a long poem as we've had in fifty years." Heaney draws on the culture of his native Ireland for this collection. Included are short lyrical verses, a long poem in which Heaney confronts ghosts from his past, and a piece about seventh century Ulster King Sweeney.

[Poetry] Heaney, Seamus.
The Haw Lantern: Poems.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Several of the poems in this collection—including the sonnet cycle "Clearances"—explore themes of mortality and loss inspired by the death of his mother, Margaret Kathleen Heaney. The title of the collection refers to the haw fruit. The fruit is an important symbol of defiance against winter, a symbol of, the dignity of the Northern Irish in the face of violence and trouble, and offering a small piece of light and hope in the darkness. The image of the lantern evoked by the title is a reference to the traditional account of the Greek cynic philosopher Diogenes of Sinope. According to the story, Diogenes carried a lantern through the streets in search of an honest man in the light.

The Spirit Level: Poems.
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.
