Summary: ''District and Circle ''inhabits the eerie new conditions of a menaced twenty-first century. In their haunted almost visionary clarity the poems assay the weight and worth of what has been held in the hand and in the memory. Scenes from a childhood spent far from the horrors of World War II are colored by a strongly contemporary sense that ''Anything can happen'' and other images from the dangerous present--a fireman's helmet a journey on the Underground a melting glacier--are fraugh
t with this same anxiety. But the volume which includes some ''found prose'' poems and translations offers resistance as the poet gathers his staying powers and stands his ground in the hiding places of love and excited language. With more relish and conviction than ever Heaney maintains his trust in the obduracy of workaday realities and the mystery of everyday renewals.
