Sinopsis:

"How should a poet properly live and write? What is his relationship to be to his own voice, his own place, his literary heritage and to his contemporary world?" These are the questions addressed by Seamus Heaney in this collection of his critical prose. There are essays from three previous collections of prose and from "The Place of Writing", a series of lectures delivered in 1988 at Emory University. Also included are several pieces not previously collected in volume form, ranging from short newspaper articles to more extended lectures and contributions to books, including "Place and Displacement" (1984), only available previously as a pamphlet, and "Burns's Art Speech", written for the bicentennial of Robert Burns's death.

About the Author:

Seamus Heaney was born in 1939 in County Derry in Northern Ir eland. He grew up in the country, on a farm, in touch with a traditional rural way of life, which he wrote about in his first book Death of a Naturalist (1966). He attended the local school and in 1951 went as a boarder to St Columb's College, about 40 miles away in Derry (the poem 'Singing School' in North refers to this period of his life). In 1956 he went on a scholarship to Queen's University, Belfast and graduated with a first class degree in English Language and Literature in 1961. After a year as a post-graduate at a college of education, and a year teaching in a secondary modern school in Ballymurphy, he was appointed to the staff of St Joseph's College of Education. In 1966 Seamus Heaney took up a lecturing post in the English Department of Queen's University, and remained there until 1972, spending the academic year 1970-71 as a visiting Professor at the University of California in Berkeley.</
