Seamus Heaney at Harvard
This article originally appeared in Poetry Review (London), Journal of the Poetry Society. Volume 75 Number 4, 1986.
Mr. Heaney, as his students knew him, returned to Cambridge for the third time last spring. Walking through the doorway of Sever 111 in a trenchcoat that concealed his sturdy build, he was a few minutes late for the class I attended, but he lost no time. Before sitting down or opening his briefcase, he aimed an announcement at the students assembled round the conference table:
AHOY! All Shipmates, Landlubbers, + Blubberlubbers Are Invited with SHOUTS + HUZZAHS To Go A'Whaling Together IN A MARATHON READING OF MOBY-DICK
he bellowed in his rich Irish brogue. 'Beginning at 9AM SHARP until we RAISE THE WHALE!'
Chuckles and laughter warmed the room. Then Mr. Heaney resumed his normal speaking voice which, though low and soft, has sounded across the Atlantic with force enough to unite American critics in hailing 'the best Irish poet since Yeats'. Mr. Heaney is suspicious of such 'overpraise'. Emily Dickinson's remark, 'They talk of hallowed things/ aloud and embarrass my Dog -' expresses the attitude of the poet who made the teaching of Harvard's Wednesday poetry workshop for undergraduate and graduate students seem a pressing personal concern.

seamus heaney. Contemporary Writers Series. General eds. Malcolm Bradbury and Christopher Bigsby. London Methuen and Company, 1982.
Seamus Heaney's Proleptic Elegies published in Kentucky Philological Review Abstract Most critics agree that Heaney's greatest works are his elegies, poems of mortal loss and consolation. He not only subscribes to the genre, he bends it, through his creation of the proleptic or anticipatory elegy. These poems participate in the conventions of the elegy, but are written before the elegized person is actually dead. Heaney restricts his use of this technique to poems about his father. An understanding of the essentially Freudian nature of the elegy (with its Oedipal overtones) is crucial for a clear interpretation of these poems. In " Digging ," Heaney's first poem in his first volume, Heaney elegizes his father almost twenty-five years before he is to die. He utilizes many of the conventions of the elegy, but adds an ironic twist. The opening image of the poem, with the pen as a gun, has Heaney dealing death in order to write. This image remains suspended throughout the poem, until it is resolved in the closing stanza, where the pen/gun becomes a spade. In effect, then, Heaney is "killing" his father in order to entext him, and the elegy becomes reflexive, itself creating the need for its existence. As in all Father and son connect through work and memory.

What Seamus Heaney Taught Me About Giving Feedback
About 15 years ago I was lucky enough to have a one-to-one writing tutorial with the poet Seamus Heaney . This was before he won the Nobel Prize, but he was still an acknowledged superstar, someone whose poetry I had been reading and studying for years. So I felt pretty nervous as I sat waiting in the corridor with my manuscripts. When it was my turn, he ushered me in and patiently read through the three poems I had brought. Obviously, my heart was in my mouth. It was so quiet I could hear him breathe.

On the 10th December, at the award ceremony in Stockholm, seamus heaney will be distinguished with the honour of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Our Seamus On the 10th December, at the award ceremony in Stockholm, Seamus Heaney will be distinguished with the honour of the Nobel Prize for Literature. A past pupil of St Columb‘s College, Derry, his work has always had a special place in that school. Conall Patton delves into his past pupil‘s history. The ripples of shared pride which washed around the country on 5th October, the day on which it was announced that Heaney would be Ireland‘s fourth Nobel Laureate, were surely even stronger in intensity in his alma mater, St Columb‘s College, Derry. A vice principal not only sallied hotfoot into the bastion of the sixth form centre to break the news, but was emboldened enough to turn down the raucous music in order to make the announcement. Bookish Crathur
Heaney, by his own definition, was always a 'bookish crathur'. Born near Castledawson, in County Derry, as the eldest son of eight children born in a Catholic Nationalist family, he made the usual transition to the Catholic education system. At an early age, he began to discard the history of farming with which his family had been associated for generations, to become Ireland‘s greatest living poet: 'Between my finger and my thumb/ The squat pen rests/ I'll dig with it.' Heaney's connection with St Columb's dates back to 1951 when he came here first as a boarder. He was to spend the next six years of his school life here. Later, when he had left St Columb's, Heaney had a few of his poems printed in university magazines in his early twenties, and in 1966, by the age of 27, had his first collection of poems published by Faber and Faber. Since then his published books, and those written about him in many different languages, fill two shelves in his old school library.

On Seamus Heaney's Poetry
Catching the heart off guard.
( Commonweal )
The generous vision of Seamus Heaney
Seamus Heaney in the college cafeteria line at Harvard: The woman serving holds her scoop aloft. "Pasta or potatoes?" she asks. "Surely, you're joking," says Heaney, and pokes his plate under the sneeze-guard for the potatoes. In "Digging," the best-known poem of his first book, Death of a Naturalist (1966), Heaney declares his distance from men like his father and grandfather, men who "could handle a spade" and "scatter new potatoes," choosing instead to follow the poet's vocation: "Between my finger and my thumb/The squat pen rests./I'll dig with it." His successes have carried him far from the Northern Ireland of his childhood, to Cambridge, Massachusetts, for part of each year, to Oxford University where he was elected to the post of Professor of Poetry (1989-94), and last year to Stockholm to accept the Nobel Prize in Literature. (I am sure I am not the only Commonweal reader who cheered at that news!) But the objects, places, literature, history, and contemporary situation of Ireland remain the poet's home turf. Justly celebrated as one of the finest poets writing in the English language, Heaney manages with unusual grace the incredibly difficult balancing act required of an international literary figure who simply must find the privacy required for writing. When I was studying at Harvard, people often wrung their hands on behalf of Seamus, as everyone familiarly calls him, even as they counted on him to appear at their colloquia and readings and parties, to remember their names, and (always) to charm. "Can it be good for his poetry?" ran the fretting refrain from this camp, even as others outside the academy expected "Famous Seamus," as they snipingly named him, to spend every waking moment promoting other Irish poets. (He is, indeed, the best known of an outstanding cohort, and not the only heir to Ireland's rich literary tradition.)

Getting behind famous Seamus
By Unknown Author The facts about Seamus Heaney are well known. Described by Robert Lowell as "the greatest Irish poet since Yeats," he is three times a Whitbread prize-winner, a Nobel winner, and has been Professor of Poetry at Oxford and Harvard. Maintaining a high degree of privacy, he gently rebuffs media interest with a wry air of never giving away more than he intends. Yet a very strong sense of what 'Famous Seamus' is like emerges from his words. Heaney's early work is amongst his best known: his first collection Death of a Naturalist depicts rural life with "unparalleled vividness" according to the poet James Fenton. The poems' lines lodge in the memory - "Between my finger and my thumb/ The squat pen rests. /I'll dig with it". Such pre-eminence was achieved so young - Heaney was twenty-five when the poems were published by Faber and Faber - because his writing was informed by his experience. One of nine children, he grew up in a farmhouse in County Derry and won a scholarship to a Catholic boarding school. The sounds of his country childhood fill the book, from "boots/ Crunching stubble" to toads "poised like mud grenades, their blunt heads farting."

Born in 1939 on a farm 30 miles Northwest of Belfast, Seamus Heaney first began to publish poetry in the literary magazines of St Joseph's College, where he became a lecturer in 1963, under the pseudonym "Incertus." " To begin with," he said in his Nobel Lecture of 1995, "I wanted that truth to life to possess a concrete reliability, and rejoiced most when the poem seemed most direct, an upfront representation of the world it stood in for or stood up for or stood its ground against. After his marriage to Marie Devlin in 1965 he moved from Northern Ireland to the Irish Republic, but remained engaged in the troubles of Northern Ireland, as he says a little later in the same Nobel Lecture, "bowed to the desk like some monk bowed over his prie-dieu, some dutiful contemplative pivoting his understanding in an attempt to bear his portion of the weight of the world, knowing himself incapable of heroic virtue or redemptive effect, but constrained by his obedience to his rule to repeat the effort and the posture."
