My essay on Seamus Heaney's 'Limbo' mentioned in Irish Independent


A couple of Saturday's back, my essay on Seamus Heaney's poem 'Limbo' got a mention in John Boland's review of the special Seamus Heaney issue of Poetry Ireland Review:


there are fine essays here…I especially liked Billy Ramsell's thoughts on 'The Journey Back', Peter Sirr's on 'The Guttural Muse', Enda Wyley's on 'The Skunk' and Kevin Higgins's on that underrated pearl 'Limbo'.”


Poetry Ireland Review editor Vona Groarke asked 46 poets to pick their favourite Seamus Heaney poem and write a short essay about it. It was an easy choice for me. You can read 'Limbo' here

To read my essay, you must buy a copy of the magazine, which you can do here.
