Seamus Heaney’s poetry covers a huge ground. With a keen eye and finely tuned voice, he composed poems of powerful local intensity that have reached a global audience. His effortless wit and humor, his warmth, and his uncanny ways of holding the world to a moral standard at once generous and exacting have proven utterly unforgettable to any who have encountered them. In six two-hour sessions we will read and discuss a representative sampling of Heaney’s poems from across his career. A selection of these will be provided in the first session.
