Heaney's Next Book

Seamus Heaney is everywhere! I've just finished Stepping Stones and at present I'm listening to the Collected Poems on CD thanks to Navan Library. I've got as far as Field Work.

He appears as part of the Dublin Writers Festival in the National Concert Hall, Dublin on 2 June.

His next book is a translation The Testament of Cresseid & Seven Fables by the fifteenth century Scottish poet Robert Henryson translated from the Scots, published by Faber (£12.99) on 11 Jun. Heaney has an article on the project in yesterday's Guardian and the Guardian's Saturday Poem is an extract from the work.
