A review of "Heaney" is first a plebiscite on your tastes in literature. If you enjoy the Irish poets, and Heaney in particular, you will fully appreciate this book. If you choose this book as your introduction to the form, you might find it daunting. I found Heaney an entertaining read (Foster clearly knows and loves the Irish poets) but this might be tough sledding for someone as a first read on Irish poetry. Four stars.
