Seamus Heaney : a collection of critical essays ( Book )
17 editions published between 1990 and 1993 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this volume Elmer Andrews has collected eleven essays addressing the entire poetic oeuvre of Seamus Heaney up to and including Seeing Things and the verse play The Cure at Troy. The eleven writers include poets and critics of distinction from Britain and America as well as from Ireland. They examine a wide variety of aspects of Heaney's work, and open up, from various angles, the sources, directions, continuities and purposes of Heaney's career to date. Heaney has always been ready to try new things: these essays are designed to help the reader get a clearer picture of the 'figure in the carpet'. The poetry is analysed and assessed in its own right, but it is also discussed in relation to its literary, social and historical contexts. A spectrum of approaches is represented, from traditional humanist perspectives to those of post-structuralist, political and cultural criticism. In their concern with the values embodied in Heaney's acts of language, these essays make an important contribution to the contemporary cultural debate in Ireland. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the poetry of Seamus Heaney and in contemporary poetry in general
