District and Circle by Seamus Heaney
District and Circle: Book summary and reviews of District and Circle by Seamus Heaney
District and Circle Summary
Seamus Heaneys new collection starts "In an age of bare hands and cast iron" and ends as "The automatic lock / clunks shut" in 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.
