Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney’s Door Into the Dark focuses on his native Ireland, and especially the rural people, and their work. "Heaney has the gift of finding a new and consummate phrase to evoke physical qualities, and when these take on symbolic resonance the result is superb. . . . [This] collection as a whole is a splendid achievement" (The Guardian).
