Works of Poetry and Prose
by Seamus Heaney

From Digging:

"My grandfather cut more turf in a day
Than any other man on Toner's bog.
Once I carried him milk in a bottle
Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up
To drink it, then fell to right away
Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods
Over his shoulder, going down and down
For the good turf. Digging."

From the preface to The Spirit Level:

"Seamus Heaney was born in County Derry in Northern Ireland. Death of a Naturalist, his first book, appeared in 1966 and since then he has published poetry, criticism and translations which have established him as one of the leading poets of his generation. Now a resident of Dublin, he was the most recent Professor of Poetry at Oxford (1989-94). In 1995 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature."
