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.

  1. He’s an incredible poet, and I’m jealous that you got to meet him! I am planning to blog about him as well.
