Summary

Summary

Seamus Heaney is widely believed to be the most talented lyric poet to come out of Ireland since Yeats. Popularity of Heaney's verse has swept through American poetry culture, and through literature departments across the continent - at least partly inspiring the current resurgence of formal poetry andm a new attention to meter. Robert Garratt has anthologized a choice selection of critical thought, observing a tripartite evolution of Heaney's ongoing work, and a corresponding reaction from scholars and critics. The thought collected here bears on Irish poetry in particular, but has vast bearing on American and English contemporary poetry as well.
