Field Work is the fifth collection of poetry by Seamus Heaney. It includes groups of elegies and love poems, with a short sequence of sonnets which concentrates themes apparent elsewhere in the book.

In a review for The New York Times, it was described as “a superb book, the most eloquent and far-reaching book he has written, a perennial poetry offered at a time when many of us have despaired of seeing such a thing.”
