Seamus Heaney: Poet, Critic, Translator collects twelve new essays and aims to comprehensively represent the abundance and variety of both Heaney's writing and scholarship on Heaney's writing. Attention is given not only to Heaney's poetry - something previous collections have tended to privilege - but also to his translations and his prose. The essays foreground Heaney's internationalism and the complementary international interest in his writing. Contributors include critics and poets from America, Britain, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
