The impact of Seamus Heaney on the cultural landscape has been profound and far reaching. His sure footed voice has been an important record of our time and place, a tuning fork sending back signals from the place where language meets pure ideas. Hearing Heaney is a collection of responses to Heaney's vision and clarity of thought, expression, and ideals.

Asked to provide readings of Heaney's work, which involved for many a personal reflection on its impact on their work or life, this collection includes contributions from a diverse range of backgrounds: journalists, fellow poets, and academics.

These diverse essays provide the reader with a fascinating series of lenses through which to view the achievement of Heaney's work and its lasting impact on the world of language and art. Contents include: The Seamus Heaney Lecture Series: Beginnings

* Of Bogs, Bodies, and Sagas

* Reluctant Amoralist: Seamus Heaney's Physical World

* Between the Lines: The Writer's Heaney

* Seamus Heaney: Part of What We Are

* Crossing Borders: Heaney and the 'Ulster Thing'

* Punishment and the Costs of Knowledge

* Ireland's Fractal Futures: Heaney, Translation, and Mobility

* Learning from Heaney: The Poet and Arts Based Educational Research

* Words into Action: Re-hearing Antigone's Claim.
