Seamus Heaney was born in County Derry in Northern Ireland in 1939. Death of a Naturalist, his first collection of poems, appeared in 1966 and since then he has published poetry, criticism and translations - including Beowulf (1999) - which established him as one of the leading poets of his generation. In 1995 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. District and Circle (2006), his eleventh collection, was awarded the T. S. Eliot Prize. Stepping Stones, a book of interviews conducted by Dennis O'Driscoll, appeared in 2008. In 2009 he received the David Cohen Prize for Literature. His twelfth collection of poetry, Human Chain, was published in 2010.

Seamus Heaney died in Dublin on August 30th, 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent collection of Heaney's essays on poetry writing. Heaney writes in a warm and accessible way that mean that the reader does not have to be an expert on poetry to understand what he is talking about. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a greater insight into Heaney's work or the way that a poet works. Ideal for student, poets and anyone else.

Better than the interviews or pieces on him, this is Heaney talking about the poems and poets (many of them personal friends) he loves. In talking about others he reveals himself and it's a self we'd all like to be.
