A Lecture on Irish Poet Seamus Heaney!
At our November meeting, Dr. John Roche will present a slide lecture based on his recent trip to “Heaney Country” in County Derry to visit the new Seamus Heaney HomePlace Center and to see some of the sites mentioned in his poetry. A sense of place was always of critical importance to Heaney. What did it mean to him to be a poet from the North of Ireland? Why did rural Derry continue to be so central to his inspiration, even after he’d moved to Dublin and to America? For more info, check out the November newsletter.
