This was the last book of his poetry published during Seamus Heaney’s lifetime; Professor Helen Vendler selected these classically-themed poems with his input. Wendy Artin’s sixteen watercolor drawings, made especially for this book, were made from Greek and Roman statues whose subjects appear in these poems, including Hercules and Antaeus, Hermes, Charon, Eurydice and Orpheus, Aphrodite, Jupiter, and Venus.
