Larkin at sixty( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many would call Philip Larkin the finest living poet writing in English. In this tribute to him on his sixtieth birthday, twenty writers have come together to celebrate the man and the poet with some specially written pieces. Some of them are reminiscent, some look at aspects of his professional life as librarian, some consider his taste as it reveals itself in his writings on jazz and in his editing of the 'Oxford Book of Twentieth Century English Verse'. The relationship between his novesls and his poems is examined, and several essays explore the poems themselves. Three poets contribute hitherto unpublished poems. Together, all these illuminate with affection and insight the work, the man behind the work, and the appeal of both
Celtic revivals : essays in modern Irish literature, 1880-1980 by Seamus Deane( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written over the past decade by one of Ireland's leading literary critics, these brilliant and erudite essays examine the close connection between literature and politics in Ireland. The evidence is ambiguous and complex but Seamus Deane sifts it with exceptional analytic clarity. He begins by locatiing the roots of modern Irish literature in the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Celtic revivals as perceived by two commentators, Burke and Arnold. We are then shown the differing attitudes of Yeats, Joyce, Synge, and O'Casey. Professor Deane then considers the bequest of these writers to the modern generation, from Beckett to Seamus Heaney. A more recent third literary revival coincided with the return of the Irish political crisis in Northern Ireland-a crisis which confronted writers as various as Thomas Kinsella, John Montague, Brian Friel and Derek Mahon, demanding that they should come to terms with it in their different ways. All the writers discussed are seen first as individuals, then as exemplars of a common fate with its own peculiar risks, burdens and responsibilities."

North by Seamus Heaney( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this new collection Seamus Heaney has found a myth which allows him to articulate a vision of Ireland -its people, history, and landscape- and which gives the book direction, cohesion and cumulative power. Here the Irish experience is refracted through images drawn from different parts of the Northern European experience, and the idea of the northallows the poet to contemplate the violence on his home ground in relation to memorries of the Scandinavian and English invasions which have marked Irish history so indelibly."

The government of the tongue : the 1986 T.S. Eliot memorial lectures and other critical writings by Seamus Heaney( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this thematically coherent book of critical essays selected from his prose writings since 'Preoccupations' (1984), Seamus Heaney scrutinizes the work of several poets, British and Irish, American and European. His subjects exemplify a devotion to the art of poetry that is complicated by their recognition of poetry's apparent indifference or ineffectuality in a world where suffering and injustice are prevalent. Their typical problem arises when they experience the gulf, which is always potentially there, between artistic integrity and other responsibilities, civic and humane. Heaney is also interested in writers' acceptance or rejection of these restraints, implicit or legislated, which societies tend to impose upon freedom of utterance. The book of 'The Government of the Tongue' carries suggestions of both monastic discipline and untrammelled romanticism, and is meant to raise an old question about the rights and status of poetic utterance itself. Should it be governed? Should it be the governor?"

Beowulf : a new verse translation by Seamus Heaney( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Composed towards the end of the first millennium of our era, the Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf is one of the great Northern epics and a classic of European literature. It is a tale of its hero's triumphs as a young warrior and his fated death as a defender of his people." "In his new translation, Seamus Heaney has produced a work that is both true, line by line, to the original poem, and an expression, in its language and music, of something fundamental to his own creative gift." "The poem is about encountering the monstrous, defeating it, being exhausted by it and then having to live on, physically and psychically exposed, in that exhausted aftermath."
