Tara, Seamus Heaney and Human Chain

I won't be at the Tara event today - some things are more important than poetry. Seamus Heaney's new collection, Human Chain, is just out so no doubt he'll be reading from it there. I presume there will be a Dublin launch later - hope to get to that.

A review of the new book here in yesterday's Irish Times. And one in the Guardian by Colm Tobin here. Colm Tobin will appear (if that's the correct verb) at Tara today with Heaney, Muldoon and Longley.

For a much different take on Heaney and his latest collection, based on reading the first half of the book read Todd Swift's blog somewhere on this page.
