Read full description of the books:
In Michael Longley's own selection from thirty years of writing, humane and lyrical poems express intimacies of love and grief within his deeply disturbed province. His sympathy and acute eye extend from ordinary neighbors to the most vulnerable forms in nature. Recently he has returned more frequently to his roots in classical literature to portray his own society aslant through refashionings of episodes of Homer and Ovid.
