In this second edition of his popular book on Heaney, Andrew Murphy charts the trajectory of Heaney's career as a poet and places his work within its various contexts. Seamus Heaney is one of the foremost poets of his generation and his work is highly prized by scholars and general readers alike. It is a measure of his success as a writer, and of the high-esteem in which he is held, that he has been appointed to professorships at both Harvard and Oxford and that he was, in 1995 awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The appeal of Heaney's poetry lies in its gracefulness, its meticulous attention to the sound and structure of language, and the range of topics engaged by the poet - from the precise particularity of the local and the familial to greater political, social and cultural themes. Heaney's poetry is seen within the framework of the Irish poetic tradition and the poet is also located within his crucial social and political context as a writer from the North of Ireland, who seeks a fruitful e

Thematically arranged and clearly structured, this book explores the seminal themes in Heaney's writing: aesthetics, politics, language, identity and myth, ethics and notions of Irishness. It is the first such study of Heaney to take into account all of his writings, poetry, prose and translations in order to demonstrate that these themes are coherently developed throughout his work. The detailed reading of various aspects of Heaney's prose should prove valuable to students of his poetry, proving a depth of reference to his evolving thought processes.A central strand of this study is an exploration of Heaney's ethical and political project with respect to issues of Irish identity as outlined in his writings. This work suggests that there are analogies between Heaney's political and ethical thought, and that of Jacques Derrida, Maurice Blanchot and Emmanuel Levinas.Each chapter concentrates on a single theme: his sense of the aesthetic, and its role in terms of politics and ethics; his relationship with politics as a contemporary situation; his notion of place, both as a given, and as something that could be reimagined; his enunciation of a sense of visceral identity; his concept of ethics in terms of a relationship between selfhood and alterity; his notion of the many threads which combine to produce a sense of Irishness. Finally, the Nobel lectures of Yeats and Heaney are examined in order to trace the complex relationship between these two writers in terms of the ethical similarities of their views on the role of the aesthetic with respect to the politic, as well as in terms of their attitudes to the complexities of identity.

Seamus Heaney has had a distinguished career as a poet and a critic. His eighth volume of poetry, "Seeing Things," appeared in 1991. Other major volumes of poetry have included "Death of a Naturalist, North, Field Work," and "Station Island." His critical writings have been collected in "Preoccupations, The Government of the Tongue," and "The Place of Writing." Heaney seems to be a poet in mid-career, moving away from an earth-centered poetry confident of its connections to a more-problematic region, where the poet becomes an uncertain pilgrim. As a critic, Heaney has high expectations for his own poetry and for that of other poets he admires, such as Lowell, Auden, Plath, Kavanagh, and Larkin. For Heaney, the most significant poets are those who have constantly challenged themselves to write -ethical lyrics-. His own poetry responds to a similar challenge."
