Publisher Description

Selected poems from a Nobel laureate

In 100 Poems, readers will enjoy the most loved and celebrated poems, and will discover new favorites, from "The Cure at Troy" to "Death of a Naturalist." It is a singular and welcoming anthology, reaching far and wide, for now and for years to come.


Seamus Heaney had the idea to make a personal selection of poems from across the entire arc of his writing life, a collection small yet comprehensive enough to serve as an introduction for all comers. He never managed to do this himself, but now, finally, the project has been returned to, resulting in an intimate gathering of poems chosen and introduced by the Heaney family. No other selection of Heaney’s poems exists that has such a broad range, drawing from the first to the last of his prizewinning collections.

From Young Lad to Man Torn by the Troubles

Sometimes Heaney takes you places and times you’ve never been. In other verses you stand next to him for the most mundane, everyday experiences we all share. But you always feel close. You aways feel that he’s invited you in to see what he’s seeing and feel what he’s feeling.

Reading his words is always a warm, thoughtful, beautiful experience. This is a wonderful collection. Four Stars.
