Seamus Heaney: 1939-2013
Today I woke up to the sad news that Seamus Heaney has died. I was not aware Heaney was in the hospital, and so the news came as a surprise.
I had the great fortune to meet Heaney, and these many years later his warmth and kindness are still vivid in my mind.
Here’s something I wrote about him. I hope it does him justice.
