OLLI: LIT-06 Poetry of Seamus Heaney

ID : 7818   
« back to classes page
Seamus Heaney was awarded the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature “for works of lyrical beauty and ethical depth, which exalt everyday miracles and the living past.” He has been referred to as a poet of peace and conflict, and as being rooted in the Irish soil. The Guardian has called Heaney “the greatest poet of our age.”  We will read and examine a selection of his poetry, and view related video clips. The poems, with a few exceptions, will be from a recent book: Seamus Heaney, 100 Poems (Faber, 2018).
