Summary

Summary

Burris (English, U. of Arkansas) examines Heaney's pastoral poems, a form historically political, demonstrating how the poet has modernized and extended the form. Burris argues that Heaney's achievements have satisfied the aesthetic demands of art as well as responsibly addressing the turmoil in his society.
