Widely praised on publication in 1987, The Haw Lantern showed Seamus Heaney venturing into new imaginative territory, with poems exploring the theme of loss - including a celebrated sonnet sequence concerning the death of the poet's mother - joined by meditations on the conscience of the writer and exercises in an allegorical vein.
