Read full description of the books:
Heaney’s poetry is more a voice than a style.
It seems to have been written to be listened to rather than to be thoroughly dissected and scrutinized.
The evocative tinge of children’s ideals and the brutality of a land divided by history and religion pulsate underneath the serene, almost romantic pace of his verses.
In Heaney’s hands, poetry appears to be the only means of communication, the only possible language to capture past, present and vision. His words emanate in effortless streams of a semi-conscious state where remembered dreams and unadorned reality, in their all-encompassing rural splendor, keep an ongoing conversation that sounds too alien for the irrational violence that kills and persecutes whatever beauty the poet seeks to immortalize in timeless writing.
What is the use of poetry then, in a world where tragedy, pain and relentless conflict tears people apart?
The image of the poet seeking his own voice to describe the wonders of nature and calamity, tradition and war, myth and dogma, to exorcize his demons in order to reinvent his new meaning, should be enough of a response.
Poetry defines the self.
Poetry can be a conduit to understand life; its force is as powerful as that of love, loss or death.
Poetry binds us together in an invisible net, greater than ourselves, islands cease to be isolated, the infinite is graspable, and landscapes become un-coded by water and ground founded clean on their own shapes, in all their extremity.”
I followed the directions of Heaney’s road map and arrived at a place where there is nothing else to say; the roaring of waves and the abrupt cliffs will always welcome me back home.
