In this collection, as ever with Heaney, personal memory and humble domestic objects -- a whitewash brush, a sofa, a swing -- are endowed with talismanic significance, and throughout the collection he addresses his growing concerns, which inevitably include the political situation in his native Northern Ireland, in a poetry that never ceases to be fluid, alert, and completely truthful.

These poems are all reminiscences of his life as a youth and young man, in so far I can tell from the poems themselves, for he provides no introduction nor notes of any kind. None of them are extraordinary or the result of a lightning strike. But, they are all well-crafted.
