William Wordsworth by Seamus Heaney William Wordsworth, Hardback (May 2016)

Features a contemporary poet who selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the authors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to the most important poets in our literature.

Aeneid by Seamus Heaney Aeneid, Hardback (March 2016)

In Stepping Stones, a book of interviews conducted by Dennis O'Driscoll, the author acknowledged the importance of the poem to his writing, noting that 'there's one Virgilian journey that has indeed been a constant presence, and that is Aeneas' venture into the underworld. In this book, he brings the ancient poem back to life.
