Recorded at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico, October 1, 2003.
Seamus Heaney’s poetry bears witness to Ireland’s complex, violent past and present, articulating the conflicts and tender mercies inherent in human experience. Heaney reads from a wide range of poems and offers easy context for the thoughts, feelings, and events behind his work, before joining in conversation with fellow poet and Irishman, Dennis O’Driscoll.
