Summary: Whereas other books on the Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney have dwelt chiefly on the biographical, geographical, & political aspects of his writing, this book looks squarely & deeply at Heaney's poetry as art.
Edition/Copyright:98 Cover: Paperback Publisher:Harvard University Press Published: 03/01/2000 International: No
Vendler's book is a clear, concise, and comprehensive study of Heaney's poetic oeuvre...Vendler strikes just the right note in her analysis of the relationship between Heaney's evolving poetic style and the Troubles in Northern Ireland...In her attention to Heaney's 'second thoughts'...Vendler makes a powerful argument for his humane political witness, accomplished by being faithful to the aim of lyric poetry, 'to grasp and perpetuate, by symbolic form, the self's volatile and transient here and now'...[An] illuminating orientation.
