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

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 323 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?"

The spirit level by Seamus Heaney( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this collection, as ever with Heaney, personal memory and humble domestic objects -- a whitewash brush, a sofa, a swing -- are endowed with talismanic significance, and throughout the collection he addresses his growing concerns, which inevitably include the political situation in his native Northern Ireland, in a poetry that never ceases to be fluid, alert, and completely truthful
