Seamus Heaney – Poetry, Nature and History – GI 19 804 (Online)
17 September 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm BST
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until 24 September 2020
Tutor: Carol Perrett BA (Hons) MAGo to all Courses
Seamus Heaney said that poetry couldn’t change the world but that it could ‘change people’s understanding of what’s going on in the world.’ In this course, we will see how his rural depictions of childhood in poems like Blackberry Picking and Follower also pose questions about life, history and self-determination. A selection of poems written early in Heaney’s career will be examined in the course. A list of poems will be provided prior to the first session. All of them can be found on Poetry Foundation or in the Faber book New Selected Poems 1966-1987.
