Description
Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney's 2006 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 21st century. In their haunted, almost visionary clarity, the poems assay the weight and worth of what has been held in the hand and in the memory. Images from a childhood spent safe from the horrors of World War IIórailway ties, a sledgehammer, the "heavyweight / Silence" of "Cattle out in rain"óare colored by a strongly contemporary sense that "anything can happen." Other images, from the dangerous present, (a journey on the Underground, a melting glacier) are fraught with this same anxiety.
