This collection of Seamus Heaney's work, especially in the vivid and surprising twelve-line poems entitled Squarings, shows he is ready to re-imagine experience and to credit marvels. The title poem, Seeing Things, is typical of the whole book. It begins with memories of an actual event, then moves towards the visionary while never relinquishing its feel for the textures and sensations of the world.
