Seamus Heaney
Heaney grew up as a country boy and attended the local primary school. As a very young child, he watched American soldiers on manoeuvres in the local fields, in preparation for the Normandy invasion of 1944. They were stationed at an aerodrome which had been built a mile or so from his home and once again Heaney has taken this image of himself as a consciousness poised between "history and ignorance" as representative of the nature of his poetic life and development. Even though his family left the farm where he was reared (it was called Mossbawn) in 1953, and even though his life since then has been a series of moves farther and farther away from his birthplace, the departures have been more geographical than psychological: rural County Derry is the "country of the mind" where much of Heaney's poetry is still grounded.
When he was twelve years of age, Seamus Heaney won a scholarship to St. Columb's College, a Catholic boarding school situated in the city of Derry, forty miles away from the home farm, and this first departure from Mossbawn was the decisive one. It would be followed in years to come by a transfer to Belfast where he lived between 1957 and 1972, and by another move from Belfast to the Irish Republic where Heaney has made his home, and then, since 1982, by regular, annual periods of teaching in America. All of these subsequent shifts and developments were dependent, however, upon that original journey from Mossbawn which the poet has described as a removal from "the earth of farm labour to the heaven of education." It is not surprising, then, that this move has turned out to be a recurrent theme in his work, from "Digging", the first poem in his first book, through the much more orchestrated treatment of it in "Alphabets"(

Seamus (Justin) Heaney (1939-) Irish poet who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995. According to Heaney, poetry balances the "scales of reality towards some transcendent equilibrium." From the early collections, Heaney have combined in his work personal memories with images of Irish heritage and the landscape of Northern Ireland. There is also references to English-Irish and Catholic-Protestant conflict. However, Heaney's view is much more visionary and allegorical than bound to contemporary issues. "Only the very stupid or the very deprived can any longer help knowing that the documents of civilization have been written in blood and tears, blood and tears no less real for being very remote. And when this intellectual predisposition co-exists with the actualities of Ulster and Israel and Bosnia and Rwanda and a host of other wounded spots on the face of the earth, the inclination is not only not to credit human nature with much constructive potential but not to credit anything too positive in the work of art." (from Nobel Lecture Seamus Heaney was born near Castledawson, County Derry, and grew up on his father's cattle farm. He was the eldest in a Catholic family of nine children. Heaney attended St. Columb's College, Derry, and moved in 1957 to Belfast to continued his studies. In 1961 Heaney graduated from Queen's University, Belfast, and was then trained as teacher at St. Joseph's College of Education. After one year as a secondary school teacher, Heaney returned to St. Josephs, where he was a lecturer for three years. In 1966 he became a lecturer at Queen University.

Dedicated to the memory of Mary Ferrell,
a dear friend who fought against the darkness.) from The Cure at Troy Human beings suffer,
they torture one another,
they get hurt and get hard.
No poem or play or song
can fully right a wrong
inflicted or endured. The innocent in gaols
beat on their bars together.
A hunger-striker's father
stands in the graveyard dumb.
The police widow in veils faints at the funeral home. History says, Don't hope on this side of the grave. But then, once in a lifetime the longed for tidal wave of justice can rise up, and hope and history rhyme. So hope for a great sea-change on the far side of revenge. Believe that a further shore is reachable from here. Believe in miracles and cures and healing wells. Call the miracle self-healing: The utter self-revealing double-take of feeling. If there's fire on the mountain Or lightning and storm And a god speaks from the sky That means someone is hearing the outcry and the birth-cry of new life at its term. ~ Seamus Heaney ~ Web archive of Panhala postings:

Seamus Heaney
Peer Critique
The first poem, "Digging," compares the poet's pen to the farmer's spade, depicting Heaney's early struggle to define himself as a poet, and break the family tradition of physical labor as an occupation. Heaney attempts to connect to the past and continue the tradition, but there is a note of independence and resolution, which may signal the end of the old ways. It serves as a defining moment in Heaney's personal life. It also serves as a hallmark for the poetry that follows. He begins to develop his version of pastoral poetry, and lays the foundation for the political dimensions that ensue. Heaney was at first wary, and perhaps embarrassed, of his vocation as a writer. Northern Irish Catholics, generally reticent by nature, were ordinarily not especially supportive of literature and poetry. He encountered a degree of occupational tension early on. Heaney said there was "some part of me entirely unimpressed by the activity... it's the generations, I suppose, of rural ancestors-not illiterate, but not literary" (Burris 31). For a time, he had difficulty justifying, even to himself, the validity of his work. When he wrote "Digging," however, it was the first time his feel got into the words, and he found his voice as a poet (Curtis 17). The poem depicts fond memories from his childhood in the country, emphasizing pride in his culture and personal indecision. His "squat pen" is compared to a clean spade, with a "bright edge," exhibiting his unease and discomfort (Heaney 3). As he muses on the differences he examines the validity of his trade. This soul-searching is amplified by Heaney's use of stanza and line length. The poem begins with a two line stanza, but as the poem progresses, the subject wanders and the stanzas grow in length. His varying use of different syllabic patterns, such as tetrameters, hexameters, and decasyllubic couplets, helps create an impression of searching or wandering (Burris 34). As the author reaches his conclusion, however, both the length of the lines and of the stanzas is shortened, leading to a terse, confident answer as the poet comes to terms with himself.
