Famous quotes containing the words seamus heaney and/or heaney:

    who would connive
    in civilized outrage
    yet understand the exact
    and tribal, intimate revenge.
    Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)

    The cold smell of potato mould, the squelch and slap
    Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
    Through living roots awaken in my head.
    But I’ve no spade to follow men like them.
    —Seamus Heaney (b. 1939)
