Seamus Heaney is a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature and is among the greatest living poets. The Poetry of Seamus Heaney would use one book, Broken Ground: Poems 1966-1996, (no advance readings required) over four Friday evenings. Since his 1965 “Digging,” the first poem in Death of a Naturalist, Heaney has been among the most read poet in English. He has articulated experiences from his vivid childhood sensations on a Derry farm to his explorations of political tensions in Northern Ireland. He has combined personal lyrics with public themes. He is also a fine translator of classic verse and drama from various languages.
