    Product Code: BBQRE
    Paperback
    After the completion of 'Dear Life', his highly praised ninth collection of poems, Dennis O'Driscoll kept his finished poems in a computer file called 'Newest Poems', subtitled 'Since completion of 'Dear Life" and 'April 2011 - '. This book reproduces its complete contents. The title we have given it, from an outstanding poem, signifies one important aspect of the collection: that it forms a substantial update to the body of his published work. Despite the collection's provisional and unfinished nature (since the poet surely hoped to add to it and prepare it for publication), the 33 poems are ones which his many readers will want to have. Darker even than much of 'Dear Life', they are full of his inimitable humour, his searching eye, his characteristic wit and wisdom.

    Dennis O'Driscoll

    Product Code: AHTWT
    Paperback
    Widely regarded as the finest poet of his generation, Seamus Heaney is the subject of numerous critical studies; but no book-length portrait has appeared until now. Through his own lively and eloquent reminiscences, "Stepping Stones" retraces the poet's steps from his early works, through to his receipt of the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature and his post-Nobel life. It is supplemented with a large number of photographs, many from the Heaney family album and published here for the first time. In response to firm but subtle questioning from Dennis O'Driscoll, Seamus Heaney sheds a personal light on his work (poems, essays, translations, plays) and on the artistic and ethical challenges he faced, providing an original, diverting and absorbing store of reflections, opinions and recollections.
