Summary
"In this book, John F. Desmond uncovers Christian elements in Seamus Heaney's poetry by reading it through the intellectual perspectives of the well-known Czech poet Czeslaw Milosz and the French philosopher Simone Weil. Desmond utilizes the connections among these writers in order to show the way Weil's thought about Christianity and transcendence illuminates Heaney's complex relationship with Christianity. Desmond's readings of Heaney's poems reveal previously unexplored depths in the work of the Nobel Prize-winning poet."--BOOK JACKET
