North. London: Faber, 1975. First wrappers issue. Pp, 73. Light fading to covers a fine copy internally. Signed by Heaney on the title-page. A collection of poems in which the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience.Whilst many commentators heralded this collection as his greatest yet, there was some resistance to it in Northern Ireland, prompted by a review by a fellow Northern Irish poet Ciaran Carson in The Honest Ulsterman, who claimed that Heaney was the ' laureate of violence - a mythmaker, an anthropologist of ritual killing.' The collection was to win the Duff Cooper Memorial Prize and the W. H. Smith Memorial Prize.
