Take Your Poet to Work Day is coming on the third Wednesday in July. For 2016, that’s July 20! This week, meet Irish poet Seamus Heaney.
As you read Seamus Heaney’s poem “Oysters, ” perhaps you, too, will start to feel the pull of the tides in each salty bite.
Appreciating poets and poems even more by reading Seamus Heaney’s “Opened Ground” alongside Frank O’Driscoll’s “Stepping Stones, ” whose interviews add depth to the poems.
Human Chain refutes the notion that poetry is the province of the young. It’s a collection of poems that demonstrates Heaney’s love of words and language, carefully chiseled and strung together like brilliant diamonds.
