Listening Back To Seamus Heaney | On Point with Tom Ashbrook: "The great Irish poet Seamus Heaney died Friday in Dublin. He was 74. Heaney was a Nobel Prize winner who wrote poetry of such earthy, brilliant power and grace that it brought hard men to tears, women too, and the whole world to remember the glory of a great poem. Seamus Heaney’s work ranged over myth and legend, politics and violence and the classics. And over soil and farm and sweat and tools. The moment of writing was, for him he said, a moment of joy. The moment of reading was for us the same. This hour, On Point: we listen back to a 2006 interview with the great now-late Seamus Heaney."
