Seamus Heaney Poetry Books

Click through the link to view a comprehensive collection of the Poet Laureate's works. Please click Seamus Heaney.

This is an excellent compilation and well worth adding to your library.
Click here for Yeats.


Selected Poems
Derek Mahon

"There is a copiousness and excitement about these poems found only in work of the highest order."
Seamus Heaney
"Verse of astonishing versatility and singing power"
Hugh Haughton, Times Literary Supplement
Yes, A Disused Shed... is in this book.
Selected Poems

This text explores the impact of World War I on the work of W.B. Yeats, Robert Graves, and Louis MacNeice in the period 1914-45, and on three contemporary Northern Irish poets, Derek Mahon, Seamus Heaney, and Michael Longley. Its concern is to place their work, and memory of the Great War, in the context of Irish politics and culture in the 20th century.
Review edited and adapted from the Times Literary Supplement.
Click here for The Great War in Irish Poetry.


Field Work
Seamus Heaney

After Bridget finished her recent article about After the Harvest (Putting out the Hare...) we were prompted to look for other references to Harvest Knots. We weren't too surprised to find a poem by Seamus Heaney from his book Field Work.


Death of a Naturalist
Seamus Heaney

Death of a Naturalist marks the auspicious outset of an acclaimed master. As a first book of poems, it is remarkable for its accurate perceptions and its rich linguistic gifts.
Note: This first of his books is out of print, you should still be able to find a copy here: Death of a Naturalist

Collected Poems
by Patrick Kavanagh

This is the only book of Patrick Kavanagh's poems we could find. The rest appear to be out-of-print. We will continue our search but, meanwhile, you can have this one.
We have our favorites, of course, and they are all in here.
Please click for Collected Poems.


Irish Love Poems
edited by A. Norman Jeffares

All the poems in this anthology are neatly placed into categories such as "Intimations, "Flirtation and 'Courtship', 'Praise and Devotion', 'Youth, Age and Memory,' and many more. Included are works by Swift, Goldsmith, Yeats, Beckett, Wilde, Synge, and Seamus Heaney, as well as offerings from a young generation of emerging poets and several by our all-time favorite, "anonymous!"

The Secret Rose: Love Poems of W. B Yeats
Edited by A. Norman Jeffares

This is a very fine introduction to the life and love poetry of W.B. Yeats. The 48 short poems published here are lovely, touching, and often sad, but have beautifully sculpted lines.
Amazon reviewer.
Click here for The Secret Rose
*The cover of this book is from a painting by Frederic William Burton called The Meeting on the Turret Stairs. The original is in the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin. A quality print is available from All posters and Prints.

Caravan
by Ethna McKiernan

I have her first book - "Caravan."
Many of the pages are dog-eared, the favorites clearly marked by the accidental ring of a wine glass put down, while leaning back to savor the pure delight of whimsies such as "Dancing the Boys Into Bed." - Bridget Haggerty
Click for Caravan

I have known Ethna for some years. As the co-publisher of my book, we first met at a Chicago book fair. What I could not have anticipated was meeting a woman with a gift for words that can move me to tears; to laughter; to joy in reading and re-reading the well-turned phrase. And, inevitably, to envying the skill.

You may think you already have Oscar's Poetry - somewhere (I did). Take a look about, if you can't find it, here's the answer (very inexpensive answer, as well).

1000 Years of Irish Poetry: The Gaelic and Anglo Irish Poets from Pagan Times to the Present
by Kathleen Hoagland

Interested in Irish Poetry?Here's the easy way to collect them all (well, almost all, anyway).
Malachy McCourt says in his introduction, "With the republication of this book, the Irish recover under their roof of stars all the great poets and writers who have been falsely claimed by the saxon crown and its minions - even our reprobates."
Amazon states this is out of stock. They still have used copies for almost nothing (except shipping - chuckle). If you would like a new edition, it was available at Powell's. We can't promise it's still there. Click here for Powell's 1000 Years.
Click here for used at Amazon.
