From the publisher

The Haw Lantern by Seamus Heaney contains some of the Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet’s most moving and memorable work.

Widely praised on its first publication in 1978, The Haw Lantern ventured into new imaginative territory with poems exploring the theme of loss - including a celebrated sonnet sequence concerning the death of the poet's mother - joined by meditations on the conscience of the writer and exercises in an allegorical vein.
