Virtual Special Issue: Remembering Seamus Heaney Irish Studies Review

Irish Studies Review

To mark the death of Seamus Heaney last year, we have put together this Special Virtual Issue of Irish Studies Review, featuring a selection of articles published on his work since 1992. Heaney has been a constant touchstone for the journal throughout its life. The essays included here cover such matters as Heaney's engagement with nature, his work with BBC Radio, his auditory imagination, and the relationship of his poetry with the Troubles. Each is testament to Michael Parker's ISR obituary of Heaney (21.4) that 'his writing delighted and enriched in equal measure, reminding readers of the heights and depths to which humanity can fall'.

These articles are freely available in electronic form until the end of June 2015.
