'...skilful and illuminating readings of individual poems...It makes rewarding reading for anyone interested in Heaney, poetry or Ireland.'- Phil Baker, Sunday Times 'As a study of the living poet, Michael Parker's book is exemplary in its intimacy and tact. Not only are the words of a sentient well-read critic alive on every page, but so too are those of Seamus Heaney's poetry and personality.' - Douglas Dunn, University of St Andrews Seamus Heaney: The Making of the Poet provides the fullest account yet of Heaney's early life, and the experiences, influences and relationships - personal, literary and political - that shaped his poetic development. Should appeal to all those interested in Heaney's work, general readers, students, teachers and lecturers.
