His (1999), a modern version of the Anglo-Saxon epic, won the Whitbread Book of the Year award. Born near Castledawsen, County Londonderry, Heaney was educated at Queen's University, Belfast. His Death of a Naturalist was the first collection from a group of Ulster poets with whom he was associated, including James Simmons, Derek Mahon, and Michael Longley. Heaney's early work, in this collection and in Door into the Dark (1969), was marked by a densely descriptive evocation of rural life. The poems of Wintering Out (1972) and North Field Work Station Island The Haw Lantern (1987), and

42. Seamus Heaney - Biography
seamus heaney was born in April 1939, the eldest member of a family which would eventually contain nine children. His father owned and worked a small farm
Seamus Heaney The Nobel Prize in Literature 1995
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.

Stephen Burt reviews District and Circle by Seamus Heaney
Other memories carry more serious burdens. In “Anahorish 1944,” the speaker (quote marks enclose the whole poem) remembers American soldiers stationed in Ireland but bound for Normandy, “Two lines of them, guns on their shoulders, marching." The tableau reverses, with elegant irony, the binary of innocence and experience, or innocence and guilt, which we might expect: “We were killing pigs when the Americans arrived,” while the soldiers were “standing there like youngsters/ As they tossed us gum and tubes of coloured sweets.” If the Heaney of North implied that guilt lay everywhere, the Heaney of District and Circle says that innocence and helplessness are everywhere too. The current "war on terror" informs a smart translation from Horace and a sketch about “a donkey on the TV news last night—/ Loosed from a cart that had loosed five mortar shells/ In the bazaar district, wandering out of sight,” away from the conflict, like Balaam's ass in reverse. When District and Circle They do not do so unaided. Equally Heaneyesque, equally individual, are the unparalleled melodic gifts, the unusually broad vocabulary and singing pentameters which can make musical any subject at all. Here is the poet simply boarding a Tube train:

Into County Clare, along the Flaggy Shore,
In September or October, when the wind
And the light are working off each other
So that the ocean on one side is wild
With foam and glitter, and inland among stones
The surface of a slate-grey lake is lit
By the earthed lightning of a flock of swans,
Their feathers roughed and ruffling, white on white,
Their fully grown headstrong-looking heads Tucked or cresting or busy underwater. Unless to think you'll park and capture it More thoroughly. You are neither here nor there, A hurry through which known and strange things pass As big soft buffetings come at the car sideways And catch the heart off guard and blow it open.

Seamus Heaney, Digging with the Pen
On rhymes and responsibilities
by Adam Kirsch
One of the most revealing questions you can ask about any poet has to do with his sense of responsibility. To whom or what does he hold himself responsible in his writing? The poet who replies “Nothing”—who believes that the concept of responsibility is foreign to the totally free realm of art—is likely to be a bad poet. If there is nothing—no reader real or imaginary, no idea, value, or principle—with the right to hold the writer to account, then there is no way for her to know when she is writing better or worse, when she is getting closer to her ideal or straying from it. That is why a genuine artist almost always wants to feel answerable to something. Not necessarily a person or a group, because any concrete audience is all too likely to constrict the imagination, to encourage flattery or evasion. But there is liberation in feeling responsible to an ideal reader—the best poets of the past, perhaps, or the unbiased readers of the future; or to an ethical principle—speaking truthfully, bearing witness, offering sympathy; or to an aesthetic ideal—the radiance of beauty, the genius of the language. Not until you know what a poet feels responsible toward can you know how he wants and deserves to be read. See accompanying interview:

By SEAMUS HEANEY [Read 6 June 2002. Published 4 July 2003.]
The author explores the literary tradition and critical reception of pastoral poetry, referring to Virgil's eclogues as well as contemporary examples by Michael Longley, Louis MacNeice, Czeslaw Milosz and Miklos Radnoti. He argues that the form of the eclogue, though a self-consciously literary one, has stayed alive through its ability to meet the challenges of new and sometimes tragic historical circumstances. In addition, the literariness of the pastoral mode allows the poet to shed new or clearer light on truth and reality. location map Royal Irish Academy, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2.

Web posted at: 2:10 p.m. EDT (1810 GMT) STOCKHOLM, Sweden The following poems are by Irish poet Seamus Heaney. The Swedish Academy cited these when awarding Heaney the 1995 Nobel Prize for literature. "Lightenings viii," from his 1991 collection, "Seeing Things" The annals say: when the monks of Clonmacnoise
Were all at prayers inside the oratory
A ship appeared above them in the air.
The anchor dragged along behind so deep
It hooked itself into the altar rails
And then, as the big hull rocked to a standstill,
A crewman shinned and grappled down a rope
And struggled to release it. But in vain.
`This man can't bear our life here and will drown,'
The abbot said, `Unless we help him.' So They did, the freed ship sailed and the man climbed back Out of the marvelous as he had known it. "The Wishing Tree," from his 1987 collection, "The Haw Lantern" I thought of her as the wishing tree that died And saw it lifted, root and branch, to heaven

Seamus Heaney (
Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests; as snug as a gun.
Under my window a clean rasping sound
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground
My father, digging. I look down
Till his straining rump among the flowerbeds
Bends low, comes up twenty years away
Stooping in rhythm through potato drills
Where he was digging.
The coarse boot nestled on the lug, the shaft
Against the inside knee was levered firmly. He rooted out tall tops, buried the bright edge deep To scatter new potatoes that we picked Loving their cool hardness in our hands. By God, the old man could handle a spade Just like his old man. My grandfather could cut more turf in a day Than any other man on Toner's bog. Once I carried him milk in a bottle Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up To drink it, then fell to right away Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods Over his shoulder, going down and down For the good turf. Digging. The cold smell of potato mold, the squelch and slap Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge

The Seamus Heaney Collection
Henry Pearson began donating his Seamus Heaney materials to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1980. From only a small number of titles given in that year, the collection has grown steadily over the past two and a half decades to contain more than 1,300 cataloged books, pamphlets, broadsides, periodicals, sound recordings, and manuscripts. In addition, there are approximately 125 relatively ephemeral items that are as yet uncataloged. These include photographs, newspaper clippings, program announcements, publishers' catalogs, exhibition catalogs, and printouts from the World Wide Web. Approximately 250 of the books, pamphlets, broadsides, and recordings are by Heaney himself. While many of the materials are first editions, Mr. Pearson has made a determined effort to create a true research collection, documenting as fully as possible the evolution of a text and its publication history. Thus, he has sought to include a wide range of bibliographical variants, including prepublication printed states (page proofs, bluelines, bound proof copies, etc.); all issues of the first edition (limited and trade, hardcover and paperback); Irish, English, and American printings; and significant later editions, printings, or translations. Many of these items have been signed by the author; some bear personal, often quite substantial, inscriptions to Mr. Pearson.

Length : Text-only version Prev Index Next Your comments on this poem to attach to the end [ microfaq Blackberry-picking Seamus Heaney In a lecture given to students at Oxford University, Seamus Heaney compared the writing of poetry to the creation of a labyrinth, one that mirrors the gruesome contortions our own world assumes at times. The difference is, however, that the poet's labyrinth, the poem, has the power to restore us, to reset the balance. Heaney displays those restorative powers wonderfully in this poem. The arrival of joy and the subsequent convulsive preparations to capture every last drop of it ("...with milk cans, pea tins, jam-pots") are honest to the rich sensations of childhood experience. The poem itself is laden with strange rich fruit, sweet clammy experience ready to be tasted and stored. This, finally, is art true to life. Aamir.

The 1995 Nobel Prize: Seamus Heaney ELIZABETH FARNSWORTH: A new translation of the epic poem "Beowulf" by the Irish poet Seamus Heaney is improbably on bestseller lists in several major U.S. cities, Los Angeles and San Francisco, among them. The poem was written in Old English more than 1,000 years ago. It tells the tale of the Scandinavian warrior, Beowulf, who slays two hellish demons and then in old age, brave beyond reason, is fatally wounded in a battle with a fiery dragon.
