This paper discusses Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney's poem, "The Forge" and serves as a kind of gateway into some of the technical and thematic aspects of Heaney's poetry.
Can be used by a teacher as the basis for a lecture, or can be used as a reading for homework which can then be used as the basis for class discussion.
I was a student of Heaney's almost thirty years ago. He actually read this paper and liked it!
