Typically descriptive of the whole book the title, Seeing Things, begins with memories of an actual event, then moves towards the visionary.

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'.

Translations of Virgil and Homer provide a prelude and a coda where motifs implicit in the earlier lyrics are given direct expression in extended narratives.

Journeys to underworlds and otherworlds correspond to the journeys made by poetic language itself.
