2 HEANEY, Seamus. District and Circle. First Edition in dustjacket.
Faber and Faber, London, 2006, ISBN:0571230962 
HEANEY, Seamus. District and Circle. London: Faber and Faber, (2006). FirstPrinting. Pp. (12),3-76,(10). 8vo, green boards with gilt lettering to spi ne. "Seamus Heaney's new collection starts 'in an age of bare hands and cast iron' and ends 'as the automatic lock / clunks shut' in the eerie new conditions of a menaced twenty-first century. In their haunted, almost visionary clarity, these poems assay the weight and worth of what has been held inthe hand and in the memory. Scenes from a childhood spent far from the hor rors of World War II are coloured by a strongly contemporary sense that 'anything can happen', and other images from the dangerous present -- a fireman's helmet, a journey on the underground, a melting glacier -- are fraught with this same anxiety. But the volume, which includes some 'found prose' and a number of translations, offers resistance as Heaney gathers his staying powers and stands his ground in the hiding places of love and excited language. In a sequence like 'The Tollund Man in Springtime' and in several poems which 'do the rounds of the district' -- its known roads and rivers andtrees, its familiar and unfamiliar ghosts -- threats to the planet are int uited in the local place, yet a lyric force prevails. With more relish and conviction than ever, Heaney maintains his trust in the obduracy of workaday families and the mystery of everyday renewals." - from the dustjacket. Very good in clean, crisp, unclipped dust jacket. 25.00
