Wintering Out

Wintering Out (1972) is a collection of poems written by Irish Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney. In Northern Ireland, the phrase "to winter out" means "to see through and survive a crisis". Some critics contend that this volume of poetry is representative of Heaney's desire to ride out the Troubles and hope for a brighter future in Northern Ireland.
