All Through the Night is a collection of moving and evocative night poems for all stages of life. Lullabies and other poems relating to children and parenting form the opening section, while later poems celebrate or give voice to our various night-time pleasures and preoccupations. The elegiac poems towards the end of the book turn to face the prospect of that last long sleep that awaits us all.
Marie Heaney’s wide-ranging selection includes poems by WH Auden, William Blake, Eavan Boland, Emily Dickinson, Paul Durcan, Seamus Heaney, Ted Hughes, John Keats, Derek Mahon, Paula Meehan, Paul Muldoon, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Sylvia Plath, William Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, WB Yeats and many more.
