Aeneid Book 06
Aeneid Book 06
In a momentous publication, Seamus Heaney's translation of Book VI of the Aeneid, Virgil's epic poem composed sometime between 29 and 19 BC, follows the hero, Aeneas, on his descent into the underworld. In Stepping Stones, a book of interviews conducted by Dennis O'Driscoll, Heaney acknowledged the importance of the poem to his writing, noting that 'there's one Virgilian journey that has indeed been a constant presence, and that is Aeneas' venture into the underworld. The motifs in Book VI have been in my head for years - the golden bough, Charon's barge, the quest to meet the shade of the father.' In this new translation, Heaney employs the same deft handling of the original combined with the immediacy of language and flawless poetic voice as was on show in his translation of Beowulf, a reimagining which, in the words of Bernard O'Donoghue, brought the ancient poem back to life in 'a miraculous mix of the poem's original spirit and Heaney's voice'.

All the Words are Yours
All the Words are Yours
I'll be your deep breath, I'll be your simple relief. I'll be home to you. Every day for the past six years, Tyler Knott Gregson has written a simple haiku about love and posted it online. These heartfelt poems have spoken to readers around the world, and won Tyler a large and loyal following. Now, in All the Words Are Yours - the follow-up to the US bestseller Chasers of the Light - this startlingly honest, vulnerable and moving new voice presents his favourites among those haiku. Some are previously unpublished; all are accompanied by his signature photographs, reproduced in gorgeous full colour. Together, they capture the textures of daily life and extraordinary love through the eyes of a man truly present in each moment.
