ENGL 48200 Twentieth Century Irish Poetry: Yeats and Heaney (LA)

This seminar will be devoted to the poetic works of the two Irish poets who received the Nobel Prize in the 20th century. William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) will forever be associated with the violent birth of the modern Irish nation, especially as it is recounted in "Easter 1916," the poem commemorating the ill-fated rebellion that initiated Irish independence. Yeats, who sought in his poems "benefitting emblems of adversity," addressed the political cataclysms of Irish rebellion and subsequent civil war. Likewise, Seamus Heaney (b. 1939), whose career has paralleled the modern "troubles" of Northern Ireland, has said that he seeks "symbols adequate to our predicament," and his poetry has embodied the deep tensions of his divided society and a humane and complex response to those division. While there will be some time spent clarifying the political, historical, and religious context in which each of the poets wrote, the main focus of the seminar will be an intensive study of the poems themselves, with special attention paid to the ways in which Heaney has embraced and transformed Yeats's earlier poetic version.
