Seamus Heaney in St Andrews
In June 2013 Seamus Heaney came to St Andrews to give an illustrated reading of some of his poems that are translated from, and inspired by, medieval literature. This reading was part of a conference called 'The Middle Ages in the Modern World', which was held to celebrate the University's 600th anniversary. Sadly, it turned out to be Heaney's last public appearance outside of Ireland.
Here you can listen to Heaney read from, and talk about, his translations of Beowulf, of Robert Henryson's poems, and the Middle English 'Names of the Hare'. Heaney also reads a poem by William Dunbar, probably a graduate of the University of St Andrews.
