"The title poem of this collection, Seamus Heaney's first after 'Field Work' (1979), is set on an island that has been a site of pilgrimage in Ireland for over a thousand years. Heaney's pilgrim is on an inner journey and proceeds through a series of dream encounters which lead him back into the world that formed him, and then forward to face the crises of the present. It is preceded by a section of richly meditative lyrics and leads naturally into a third group of poems, in which the poet's voice is at one with the voice of the legendary Sweeney, a king of Ulster whose story Heaney translated from the Irish."

        Night

      Geneva, Switzerland: The Bibliophile Library (Gercor Ltd). As New in As New dust jacket. 1985. First Edition. First Printing. Leather. 0935613005 . Inscribed by Elie Wiesel on the half-title page (in addition to the facsimile signature on the cover). Publisher's full brown leather, spine in three compartments, separated by seven gilt and two green borders each, gilt lettering in one compartment, gilt lettering in green panel in second compartment, gilt and green decoration in final compartment, gilt and green borders on covers, author's facsimile signature, gilt, on cover, a.e.g., printed burgundy endpapers. Illustrated with several monochrome drawings by Mark Podwal. Translated from the French by Stella Rodway. Foreword by Francois Mauriac. "Night" is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. In his preface, Wiesel reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be. .

Then a lethal black chemical cloud, unleashed by an industrial accident, floats over their lives, an "airborne toxic event" that is a more urgent and visible version of the white noise engulfing the Gladneys
