Strider Marcus Jones reviews Seeing Things by Seamus Heaney on goodreads.com


Seeing Things: PoemsSeeing Things: Poems by Seamus Heaney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am reading this book of poetry for the third time. Heaney's poetry rewards patience. The metaphors and symbolism connect the past and present and elsewhere in language that is both earthy and from a higher plaine of thought used to reveal the secrets in everyday situations. Heaney doesn't play to the highest common denominator for popularity, or play it safe by selling his soul to powerful causes. He is his own man, letting you in in his own language, simple but complex and always with that earthy or other worldly lyrical beauty in so many lines and phrases. Like W B Yeats, Heaney's poetry turns my thinking inside out and back again and somehow leaves me feeling more complete.
