This collection of thirty-one poems is Seamus Heaney's first since Station Island (1985). Already justly celebrated for his flawless handling of the lyric, Heaney ventures into new imaginative territory with this book. Poems exploring the theme of loss—including a beautiful sonnet sequence concerning the death of the poet's mother—are joined by meditations on the conscience of the writer and exercises in an allegorical vein which will both surprise and delight the many admirers of his previous work.
Writing about The Haw Lantern in The Sunday Times (London), John Carey said, "Heaney's poetry seems unforced, deep, natural." It is these qualities which have helped to make Seamus Heaney one of the most widely read and admired poets writing in English today.
