Thread Name: Seamus Heaney - your favourite poem
Subject: RE: Seamus Heaney - your favourite poem
This is great thank you. Love 'The Given Note' and although 'Early Purges' is a bit brutal it is authentic and thought provoking.
Three people have suggested Beowulf, this is something that I would never have looked at in a million years because I suppose that it would be too difficult to just read and understand.
I've always thought that it was a poem that needed to be studied and explained in order to access it. Am I wrong?
I suppose that I should get a copy from the library and try it!
Keep em coming.
