This copy is from the library of Heaney’s close friend, the poet Jon Stallworthy (1935-2014), with his signature on the front free endpaper. Formerly the poetry editor of Oxford University Press, Stallworthy was a professor of English at the University of Oxford and Cornell University, and a Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Literature.
