The Haw Lantern by Seamus Heaney


Widely praised on its first publication in 1987, The Haw Lantern ventured into new imaginative territory with poems exploring the theme of loss – including a celebrated sonnet sequence concerning the death of the poet’s mother – joined by meditations on the conscience of the writer and exercises in an allegorical vein. This beautifully designed edition forms part of a series of ten titles celebrating Faber’s publishing over the decades.
