Helen Vendler on Seamus Heaney

Thursday, January 28 | 6 pm – 9 pm

At 92Y | Warburg Lounge
Lexington Avenue at 92nd Street

This seminar will survey poems from the three volumes Seamus Heaney completed between the 1995 Nobel Prize and his death in 2013. Explore his adaptation of classical motifs and ethics to modern circumstances, his debts to Virgil and Ovid in constructing his own autobiography, and his stark poems of oncoming death.

Helen Vendler is the A. Kingsley Porter University Professor at Harvard. Her most recent book is The Ocean, the Bird, and the Scholar: Essays on Poets and Poetry.
