Whether autobiographical, topical, or specifically literary, these writings circle the central preoccupying questions of Seamus Heaney's career: "How should a poet properly live and write? What is his relationship to be to his own voice, his own place, his literary heritage and the contemporary world?"

Along with a selection from the poet's three previous collections of prose ( Preoccupations, The Government of the Tongue , and The Redress of Poetry ), the present volume includes Heaney's finest lectures and a rich variety of pieces not previously collected in volume form, ranging from short newspaper articles to radio commentaries. In its soundings of a wide range of poets - Irish and British, American and Eastern European, predecessors and contemporaries - Finders Keepers is, as its title indicates, "an announcement of both excitement and possession."
