Summary
  • "This is a study of the Irish, Nobel prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney's Seeing Things (1991), a volume which marks a turning point in Heaney's writing. From an earlier concern with the outer physicality of things, Heaney turns with deepened awareness to the inner landscapes of the mind, where the thingness of things is explored and expressed in language. This study examines this new departure in the light of what Heidegger terms a call to "primordial authenticity." In this respect poetry is seen as an attempt to give expression to the spiritual dimension of our being, to the simplicity as well as the complexity of everyday experience."--Jacket
