Heaney still has the gift of finding a new and consummate phrase to evoke physical qualities, and when these take on a symbolic resonance the result is superb ... the collection as a whole is a splendid achievement, confirming Heaney's reputation as one of the best of the younger poets on either side of the Irish sea"" Richard Kell in the Guardian.
Interesting notes on final leaf, presumably by an academic "America has direction without depth; Ireland has depth without direction."
