Seamus Heaney is widely recognized as one of the major poets of the 20th century

Seamus Heaney is widely recognized as one of the major poets of the 20th century. Heaney's poetry is known for its aural beauty and finely-wrought textures. Often described as a regional poet, he is also a traditionalist who deliberately gestures back towards the pre-modern worlds of William Wordsworth and John Clare. Heaney was born and raised in Castledawson, County Derry, Northern Ireland.

Mr. Heaney has created a remarkable series of poems that stay 'true to the impact of external reality' while at the same time remaining 'sensitive to the inner laws of the poet's being. "―Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times. Having just reread most of his poems, I find myself more, not less, interested, and convinced that I have only begun to plumb their bracing depths.

I have not read all of these poems as yet as each one calls me to read it over and over. Heaney's startling analogies and humorous twists charm me and shake me up. Listen to Heaney's music in "the pedal treads hanging relieved of the boot of the law" in describing a constable's bicycle.

A crisp, clean, and fine book of lovely poetry.

I love poetry but am new to many poets. I read that Seamus Heaney had died I wanted to read some of his work. I have read only a bit of this so far but I writes wonderfully.

Heaney's "Selected Poems" shows a good picture of the poet's development up to "Station Island" and the sonnets of Glanmore and Clearances. Like Yeats, Heaney had to go through a few volumes before he "became good": except for "The Tolland Man," the poems selected from his first four collections are flat, even the much-anthologized "Digging," which perseveres in anthologies only because it illustrates Heaney's overall philosophy. With the bog poems from "North," Heaney comes into his own, and he has managed to remain at this consistent level of excellence since then.

Seamus Heaney is an Irish treasure in literature. His works display the "concrete reality" that he aimed for in his poetry. My favorite poem is "Digging". He is talented in fusing agric./pol./soc./religion themes together in one poem.
