In North Seamus Heaney found a myth which allowed him to articulate a vision of Ireland - its people, history and landscape. Here the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience, and the idea of the north allows the poet to contemplate the violence on his home ground in relation to memories of the Scandinavian and English invasions which have marked Irish history so indelibly.

Review:

[Heaney's] awareness of a wider social world . . . reaches its culmination in "North" (1975), a deservedly famous volume that [Helen] Vendler regards as 'one of the crucial poetic interventions of the 20th century, ' ranking with Eliot's "Prufrock," Wallace Stevens' "Harmonium," and Frost's "North of Boston" in 'its key role in the history of modern poetry.'
