Seamus Heaney, Nobel Laureate

Coilin Owens

Seamus Heaney is Ireland’s fourth Nobel Literature prizewinner. His poetry is accessible, immediately appealing, and skillfully crafted. As it draws on the Irish cultural tradition for its references, it celebrates the joys of ordinary life: childhood, family relations, work, and community. The presentation will examine a few radiant examples from this work.
