Electric Light


Electric Light (Faber and Faber, 2001, ISBN 978-0-571-20798-5) is a poetry collection by Seamus Heaney, who received the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature. The collection explores childhood, nature, and poetry itself. Part one presents translations and adaptations, occasional and celebratory poems, and verse about travel in the Gaeltacht, the Balkans and Greece. Part two of the collection consists of elegies for poets (Ted Hughes, Joseph Brodsky, and Zbigniew Herbert), and Heaney's relatives and friends. Heaney has been recorded reading this collection on the Seamus Heaney Collected Poems album.
