Seamus Heaney

Seamus Heaney (born April 13, 1939) is an Irish poet whose work often deals with "the local"--that is, his surroundings and everything inclusive of them.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995 and has taught at Harvard University.

In addition to his original works, Heaney has published translations, including a verse translation of Beowulf from Old English in 1999.

Heaney was born in County Derry, Ireland.
