Seeing Things (1991), as Edward Hirsch wrote inThe New York Times Book Review, "is a book of thresholds and crossings, of losses balanced by marvels, of casting and gathering and the hushed, contrary air between water and sky, earth and heaven." Along with translations from theAeneid and theInferno, this book offers several poems about Heaney's late father.

Seamus Heaney received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995.

“Heaney's most plain-spoken and autobiographical book to date. Here is the transcendence ofSeeing Things, the simple and miraculous escalation from a sixth sense to a seventh heaven, the lovely delusive optics of sawing and cycling and barred gates. . . .” —Michael Hofmann, The London Review of Books

“[ReadingSeeing Things] you feel what readers of say, Keats's odes or Milton's 1645 collection must have felt--the peculiar excitement of watching a new masterwork emerge and take its permanent place in our literature.” —John Carey, The Sunday Times (London)
