Seamus Heaney

Seamus Heaney

I was saddened to see the news this morning that Irish poet Seamus Heaney passed away today.  I was one of the lucky ones to be at his reading in Dublin for ISAS, one of his last appearances.  The reading was recorded, and this Beowulf excerpt, The Last Survivor, is online.  It took an Irishman to really understand Old English poetry.
