Death of a Naturalist by Seamus Heaney

Donated by The Book Show (RTE Radio1), who says...

‘Between my finger and my thumb/The squat pen rests; as snug as a gun.’ These lines from ‘Digging’, one of the poems in this collection, were published 60 years ago and Seamus Heaney’s squat pen never rested after that. The poems gathered here mark the coming of age, the end of innocence and the beginning of the poet’s passion for words.
