There’s nothing like passion, especially where poetry is concerned, so when Graham Fawcett offers a lecture about Seamus Heaney’s lifelong work, it’s bound to be exhilarating. Join him on17th November at Brendon Books.

7.00 pm Graham  Fawcett on Seamus Heaney £10.00 – Brendon Books, Bath Place, Taunton

After recent successes at Brendon Books with lectures on Neruda, Byron and Ted Hughes, Graham Fawcett returns to talk about Seamus Heaney. Graham Fawcett reflects on the exhilarating range of Heaney’s achievement over nearly fifty years, from his momentous poetic début in 1966 with Death of A Naturalist, poems about his early life in rural Northern Ireland in which he sings with passion, craft and clarity about the world within a world around him.
When Graham Fawcett had the opportunity to meet Heaney in 2009 and happened to mention to him that the first reading course he gave to Poetry School audiences in London from 1998 was called Heaney to Homer and Back, Heaney said, ‘I’m glad you came back’.
