Eleven Poems. Belfast: Festival Publications .Third issue. Pp14. A very good copy in grey-green card covers. Collects some of Heaney's earliest poems. Eleven Poems signified more than just the commencement of Heaney's own career as a poet; it also marked a particularly crucial moment in the literary history of Northern Ireland. The 1965 Literary Festival from which Eleven Poems was issued was, to a large extent, a much-needed literary renaissance and artistic rebirth in Northern Ireland. [Brandes A1c].
