"In his new translation, Seamus Heaney has produced a work that is both true, line by line, to the original poem, and an expression, in its language and music, of something fundamental to his own creative gift." "The poem is about encountering the monstrous, defeating it, being exhausted by it and then having to live on, physically and psychically exposed, in that exhausted aftermath."--BOOK JACKET." ;
