For the fortieth anniversary of its publication, in May 2006, Faber are reissuing Seamus Heaney's classic first collection,Death of a Naturalist, which on its appearance in 1966 won the Cholmondeley Award, the E.C. Gregory Award, the Somerset Maugham Award and the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize.'His words give us the soil-reek of Ireland, the colourful violence of his childhood on a farm in Derry. The full-blooded energy of these poems makesDeath of a Naturalist the best first book of poems I've read for some time.' - C.B. Cox in theSpectator 'The power and precision of his best poems are a delight, and as a first collectionDeath of a Naturalist is outstanding [...] His subject is those things which are inherent or inherited. What he praises is to be praised in his own work.' - Christopher Ricks,New Statesman'Now, to pry into roots, to finger slime, To stare big-eyed Narcissus, into some spring Is beneath all adult dignity. I rhyme To see myself, to set the darkness echoing.'

Seamus Heaney was born in 1939 in County Derry in Northern Ireland . Death of a Naturalist, his first book, appeared in 1966. Since then he has published poetry, criticism and translations for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995. He received the Whitbread Book of the Year for The Spirit Level (1996) and Beowulf (1999). His twelfth and most recent collection, District and Circle, was published in April 2006.
