This is the first attempt at a comprehensive bibliography of the published work of the poet and critic, Seamus Heaney. Compiled in accordance with principles of modern bibliographical scholarship (and with the assistance of the poet), the aim of the editors has been to list everything that Seamus Heaney has published, poetry and prose, and to provide full details of the circumstances of publication for his major works, including first print-runs, reviews, previous appearances of individual items in periodicals and newspapers and other descriptive notes. Sections also include translations, recordings, broadcasts and interviews. Aside from its importance to bibliographers, the Bibliography will be essential for students of the textual history of Seamus Heaney’s work.
