    Caroline Forbes/ Farrar, Straus and Giroux Seamus Heaney REVIEWS OF SEAMUS HEANEY'S EARLIER BOOKS:
  • Death of a Naturalist
    "Heaney writes poetry that is urbane, accomplished, predictable. He also has been struck by violence and by ugliness. . . . But the ugliness is undercut by wit, a wit that is sometimes heavy-handed."
  • North ,' reviewed by Helen Vendler
    "Heaney, to my mind the best poet now writing in Ireland, seems the only one of his generation not in some way inhibited by the shadow of Yeats."
  • Field Work
    ". . . a superb book, the most eloquent and far-reaching book he has written, a perennial poetry offered at a time when many of us have despaired of seeing such a thing."
  • Preoccupations ,' reviewed by Robert Pinsky
    "As a prose writer, Mr. Heaney has a nimble, elegant charm and the ability to rise suddenly, at his best, from conventional ideas to home truths."

    Beowulf: A New Translation
    Seamus Heaney
    A book review by Danny Yee For those unfamiliar with Beowulf , it is a late first millennium Anglo-Saxon epic about the hero Beowulf's fights with three monsters: Grendel, Grendel's mother, and, fifty years later at the end of his life, a dragon. Since its rediscovery in the early nineteenth century, it has become a recognised classic, translated scores if not hundreds of times. Not being able to read Old English, all I can say here is that Heaney's translation gave me a better understanding of why people rave about the poem than any of the others I have read. Perhaps the most notable aspect of Heaney's Beowulf "I came to the task of translating Beowulf with a prejudice in favour of forthright delivery. I remembered the voice of the poem as being attractively direct, even though the diction was ornate and the narrative method at times oblique." So he captures something of the Anglo-Saxon alliterative verse form, but not at the expense of "the sound of sense"; he doesn't inflict awkward archaisms on the reader and is never difficult to read. Here is a brief sample, from the wait after Beowulf dives to attack Grendel's mother. "Immediately the counsellors keeping a lookout

    Literary Allusion and the Poetry of Seamus Heaney
    Style Spring, 1999 by Kerry McSweeney Over the past two decades, theoretical interest in intertextuality, presupposition, and influence has generated a good deal of interesting discussion of the device of literary allusion. This has led to a better understanding of what the device is and how it functions. A literary allusion is an explicit or implicit reference to another literary text that is "sufficiently overt" to be recognized and understood by competent readers (Petri 290). It is "a poet's deliberate incorporation of identifiable elements from other sources" and should be distinguished from "intertextuality" in the "involuntary" sense of the term (Miner 38-39; and see Alter). In Ziva Ben-Porat's formulation, a literary allusion contains a "built-in directional signal" or "marker" that is "identifiable as an element or pattern belonging to another independent text" (108).

    Seamus Heaney Biography
    Séamus Heaney was born in 1939 on a farm called Mossbawn in Co. Derry. His father was a farmer and cattle trader. He performed well in school and went on to receive a degree in English Language and Literature from Queen's University, Belfast, becoming interested in poets such as Ted Hughes, Patrick Kavanagh and Robert Frost, whose work was rooted in their native backgrounds. Declining an offer to undertake further study at Oxford, Heaney trained instead as a teacher and took up a teaching job in Belfast, while still pursuing his writing. Following the success of his early work, he was appointed lecturer in English at Queen's University, at a time when the war in the North of Ireland was gaining force. A year lecturing at the University of California saw Heaney embracing a more free form of poetry. Not long after this, finding the state of affairs in Northern Ireland increasingly difficult, he resigned his position at Queen's and moved with his wife and their children, first to Wicklow and later to Sandymount in Dublin, where he still lives. His works include: "

    O NE of the most celebrated literary landmarks in Ireland is "the autograph tree," in what was once the walled garden of Lady Augusta Gregory's estate at Coole Park, in County Galway. On the welted bark one can still make out the famous initials: WBY, GBS, AE, and several more, including those of Violet Martin (the pseudonymous "Ross" of the Somerville and Ross writing partnership), who visited Coole in the summer of 1901, and wrote,

He is egregiously the poet mutters ends of verse to himself with a wild eye, bows over your hand in dark silence but poet he is and very interesting indeed and somehow sympathetic to talk to I liked him.... Augusta made me add my initials to a tree already decorated by Douglas Hyde, AE and more of the literary crowd. It was most touching. WBY did the carving, I smoked, and high literary conversation raged and the cigarette went out and I couldn't make the matches light, and he held the little dingy lappets of his coat out and I lighted the match in his bosom.

    Emory Acquires Nobel Laureate Seamus Heaney Letters
    The Woodruff Library of Emory University has acquired a major portion of the archive of the Nobel Prize-winning Irish poet Seamus Heaney. The collection of personal and literary papers includes thousands of letters spanning Heaney’s entire career as well as printed materials, tape recordings and photographs. Heaney made the announcement Tuesday, Sept. 23 prior to a reading at Emory in honor of the university’s recently retired president, William M. Chace. This acquisition, the latest in a long series of major Irish literary acquisitions by Emory, establishes at the university the largest and most complete archive anywhere for the study of Heaney’s life and work, according to Stephen Enniss, the university’s director of special collections and archives. The acquisition of the Heaney papers is the culmination of a collecting initiative that has spanned more than 15 years and that now includes the archives of many of the finest contemporary poets. “When I was here this summer for commencement, I came to the decision that the conclusion of President Chace’s tenure was the moment of truth, and that I should now lodge a substantial portion of my literary archive in the Woodruff Library, including the correspondence from many of the poets already represented in its special collections,” said Heaney in making the announcement. “So I am pleased to say these letters are now here and that even though President Chace is departing, as long as my papers stay here, they will be a memorial to the work he has done to extend the university’s resources and strengthen its purpose.”

    Seamus Heaney
    on Beowulf and his verse translation
    And now this is ‘an inheritance’ –
    Upright, rudimentary, unshiftably planked
    In the long ago, yet willable forward Again and again and again.
    1 B EOWULF: T HE P OEM The poem called Beowulf was composed some time between the middle of the seventh and the end of the tenth century of the first millennium, in the language that is today called Anglo-Saxon or Old English. It is a heroic narrative, more than three thousand lines long, concerning the deeds of a Scandinavian prince, also called Beowulf, and it stands as one of the foundation works of poetry in English. The fact that the English language has changed so much in the last thousand years means, however, that the poem is now generally read in translation and mostly in English courses at schools and universities. This has contributed to the impression that is was written (as Osip Madelstam said of The Divine Comedy ) ‘on official paper’, which is unfortunate, since what we are dealing with is a work of the greatest imaginative vitality, a masterpiece where the structuring of the tale is as elaborate as the beautiful contrivances of its language. Its narrative elements may belong to a previous age but as a work of art it lives in its own continuous present, equal to our knowledge of reality in the present time.

    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.
