>Seamus Heaney reads

>Here is a wonderful video of the great Irish poet Seamus Heaney reading and discussing poetry.


Heaney was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995. I was introduced to his works by a good friend a few years ago. He is certainly in my top three favorite poets. The other two? 1) Czesław Miłosz, and 2) space available (could be Yeats or Wordsworth or a number of other poets). If you are not familiar with Heaney, buy a copy of his collected poems (there are several collections) and start reading.

I post this because this is National Poetry Month.
