Inscribed by Seamus Heaney on the front free endpaper to poet Quincy Troupe:

‘Quincy: ‘Our poesy is as a gem | which oozes | From whence ’tis nourished. . .’ Well met in San Diego, Seamus Heaney, 23. ii. ’99.’

Collection of poems taken from four previous volumes, Death of a Naturalist (1966), Door Into the Dark (1969), Wintering Out (1973) and North (1975).

It provides an ideal introduction of the first ten years of Heaney’s creative activity.
