The Literary Legacy of Seamus Heaney
The Literary Legacy of Seamus Heaney: Famous Poets Remember Nobel Winner
Though Seamus Heaney had been called "the most important Irish poet since W.B. Yeats" by Robert Lowell, The New York Times and many others, by the time Heaney died last year at the age of 74, critics were calling him the most important poet of his time, full stop. Now the Folger Shakespeare Library presents The Literary Legacy of Seamus Heaney, a celebration of the Nobel Prize winning author of District and Circle, Field Work, Human Chain and a best-selling translation of Beowulf. A star-studded slate of poets, including Eamon Grennan, Paula Meehan, Frank Bidart, Bernard O'Donoghue and Jane Hirshfield, will read and comment upon his work at Lutheran Church of the Reformation.
