A collection of all the poems by Seamus Heaney I have read here over the past few months, spanning his entire career. Each of his collections of poetry can of course be purchased on their own, but nearly everything I read here can be found either in his career-spanning 100 Poems, or in the two volumes of his selected poetry: Selected Poems 1966-1987 and Selected Poems 1988-2013.  Death of a Naturalist (1966) Follower Poem Personal Helicon Door Into the Dark (1969) Dream The Forge Bogland Wintering Out (1972) The Tollund Man Limbo First Calf North (1975) Belderg Funeral Rites Bog Queen The Grauballe Man Punishment Strange Fruit Kinship Field Work (1979) The Strand at Lough Beg from "Field Work" Station Island (1984) The Railway Children VII from Station Island VIII from Station Island The Scribes The Haw Lantern (1987) III from Clearances The Mud Vision Seeing Things (1991) Seeing Things 1.1.87 #2, #8 from Lightenings #15 from Settings #25, #27, #31, #32 from Crossings #40, #42, #45, #46 from Squarings The Spirit Level (1996) The Strand Postscript District & Circle (2006) A Shiver #1 from "District & Circle" A Hagging Match Human Chain (2010) Uncoupled Miracle from "Colum Cille Cecinit" from Hermit Songs from In the Attic from Heaney's translation of Beowulf Any comments, or suggestions for readings I should make in later episodes, can be emailed to humanvoiceswakeus1@gmail.com. I assume that the small amount of work presented in each episode constitutes fair use. Publishers, authors, or other copyright holders who would prefer to not have their work presented here can also email me at humanvoiceswakeus1@gmail.com, and I will remove the episode immediately.
