Heaney’s North (8 Week Online Course)
Join poet and playwright Nathaniel Joseph McAuley in the exploration of Seamus Heaney’s groundbreaking and controversial collection, North. North is an intimate and raw examination of the Northern Irish mindset during the Troubles and a deeply personal search for meaning as the poet delves into his ancient Irish heritage to find an explanation for violence. Exploring the themes of conflict, war, lineage and the Irish connection to the land, North includes many of Heaney’s most iconic works, including his Singing School sequence, many of The Bog Poems and Whatever You Say, Say Nothing.
