Dear Reader

Welcome to BookCrossing and thanks for being a part of World Book Night 2011, the largest book giveaway in history. 1,000,000 specially printed copies of 25 different books changed hands on March 5th 2011 and began their journey from reader to reader. This book is one of them. World Book Night has joined with BookCrossing to help track these books as they travel. You can be a part of that journey by making a comment in the book's journal here on BookCrossing. Your journal entry can say how you got the book, what you thought of it, your plans for it or whatever else you might like to add.

On BookCrossing you may choose to remain anonymous or join (it's free).

Found on the MKLibraries BC shelf after World Book Night. I've always meant to give Mr Heaney a go, now's my chance.

I haven't maybe given this the attention it deserves yet. I must say that I found a lot of the poems so grounded in Ireland and its idiom and culture that I struggled with a lot, but I did 'get' the ones about the bog bodies of Denmark, relating them to victims of the troubles (and vice versa). Very moving.

I'm passing this on to a lady who wanted a copy for her poetry group and would have had to wait too long for the library copy to come back. Maybe I'll try some more when it comes back my way.

Sorry for stripping out the already sparse Bookcrossing shelves in the library, but this will be very useful for my English tutoring work!

Whoops! I just realised that I never made a journal entry on this book. I picked it up from the book buffet table at the Colchester UnConvention.

My review of the book:

The poems in this book are very deep. Mostly too deep for me, but I did especially like a few of them, namely:
"For Bernard and Jane McCabe" page 210
"The Wishing Tree" page 234
"A Kite for Michael and Christopher" page 158

I'm not much of a poetry reader, but this was quite an experience. My favourites were Station Island and Clearances.

Thanks for sharing, this book is once again ready to travel!
