Seamus Heaney Lecture

 

My sister and I attended a lecture tonight by Irish poet Seamus Heaney at the University. I have been a fan of Mr. Heaney’s for years and it was such an honor to be able to hear him speak in person. There is nothing more enthralling than listening to the cadence of a seasoned poet. As a part of the Medieval Studies convention, he of course focused his discussion on not only the poets of that time, but specifically of Fife – the kingdom in which St. Andrew’s is located.

Tonight I got to hear Seamus Heaney read and discuss Beowulf in person – five feet away from me. This is one of those moments that is going to stick for a long time. Did I mention that Cormac McCarthy was sitting in the audience with us?!

Above is an interview from a few years ago that I think gives a pretty good impression of who he is.
