Poetry and politics: A conversation between Seamus Heany and Joseph Brodsky

Seamus Heany was born in County Derry in 1939, and published his first poems while working in Belfast in the early sixties. Since then he has published six major collections of poetry, including Death of a Naturalist, North and Station Island. He now divides his time between Dublin and Harvard where he directs a writing workshop in the spring of each year.
