Northern Irish poet Seamus Heaney won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995. Since then his lines have been quoted by world leaders, his translation of “Beowulf” became a best-seller, and he has praised rapper Eminem for encouraging interest in poetry among young people. But in his 2006 collection, District & Circle, Heaney returned to some of the darkest images of his work in the 1970s… when the violence in Northern Ireland was still his main preoccupation. Perro de Jong talked to the poet at the 2006 Poetry International Festival in Rotterdam. Tune in Tuesday at 7:00 on KUAC FM, KUAC HD, KUAC online and KUAC TV 9.5.
