In-Person Talk | A History of Rural Ireland seen through Heaney's Poetry
Join us for a trip down memory lane as we discover a history of rural life in Heaney's poetry.
When Seamus Heaney began writing poetry in the 1960s Ireland was moving into the modern era, but it was to memories of growing up on a small rural farm in the 1940s that Heaney turned for poetic inspiration. The pictures he paints for us in his poetry gives us a window into a lost world of threshing and thatching, of horse ploughing and butter churning. Join us for a trip down memory lane as we discover a history of rural life in the lines of Seamus Heaney’s poetry.
