Thread Name: Seamus Heaney - your favourite poem
Subject: RE: Seamus Heaney - your favourite poem
Such a sad loss. His translation of Beowulf replaced Tolkein's as the definitive version. Totally inspirational. Apart from that, anything from Opened Ground and,of course, his transaltion of Sweeny Astray. Oh shit,just about everything he did was brilliant.
