Seamus Heaney(April 13,1939 - August 30, 2013 / Castledàwson, County Londonderry)
I studied Seamus Heaney for A level English Language and Literature poetry element in 2012. I absolutely love the work of this man, so sad he passed away. His poems are particularly fabulous to listen to in his own voice. A greatly talented poet, an inspiration. I only wish I had a hundredth of his talent.
I just viewed a very offensive video of the late iconic poet on youtube when I visited the website to view his last appearance titled 'last appearance of Seamus Heaney'.
I was horrified! I can't even believe that anyone could do it.
in his first collections heaney is fascinated with the soil as he can perceive a mysterious life force in it. He uses many words to refer to it: slime, muck, mush. All of them describe a soil that is wetting and become less solid: this is a metaphor for sexual life, where the soil is the female element responding to a male one.
