Forget the machinations of celebrity. This poet speaks to you as a friend. He shares the poems and he shares a few details of his experience in writing them,, with minimal jargon. He is talking to a reader, not to someone merely trying to pass an examination. No wonder he is very popular. I like his work even more after hearing these through his own voice.

Seamus Heaney represents the end of an era, the last of a direct line back to W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory to 1870. Although regarded as a poet in the tradition of the Irish Renaissance, he is not an Irish Romantic. Heaney is a nostalgic realist.
