Summary: Field Work, which first appeared in 1979, is a superb collection of lyrics and narrative poems from one of the literary masters of our time. As the critic Dennis Donoghue wrote inThe New York Times Book Review: ''In 1938, not a moment too soon, W. B. Yeats admonished his colleagues: 'Irish poets, learn your trade.' Seamus Heaney, born the following year, has learned his trade so well that it is now a second nature wonderfully responsive to his first. And the proof is inField Work, a
superb book . . . [This is] a perennial poetry offered at a time when many of us have despaired of seeing such a thing.'' Seamus Heaneyreceived the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995. His recent translations includeBeowulfandDiary of One Who Vanished; his recent poetry collections includeOpened GroundandElectric Light.
