Seamus Heaney

  • Numbered edition

This is number 242 of the very special and limited run of The Human Chain – with a cloth spine this edition sits in a beautiful slip case and is signed by Seamus Heaney.

Seamus Heaney’s new collection elicits continuities and solidarities, between husband and wife, child and parent, then and now, inside an intently remembered present – the stepping stones of the day, the weight and heft of what is passed from hand to hand, lifted and lowered. “Human Chain” also broaches larger questions of transmission, as lifelines to the inherited past. There are newly minted versions of anonymous early Irish lyric, poems which stand at the crossroads of oral and written, and other ‘hermits songs’ which weigh equally in their balance the craft of scribe and the poet’s early calling as scholar.
