    Book synopsis: Seamus Heaney: Poet, Critic, Translator explores the range of Heaney's writing, emphasizing significant intersections in his work - meeting places; spaces between; tradition meeting the contemporary context as life meets death; liminal poetic representations and political divisions; town and woods, absence and presence; inner reality facing external reality; the timely and the transcendent; region and wider world; Irish tradition encountering Polish tradition; the space between modern English and ancient Greek; the meeting of personal and formal in the translation of Beowulf; different times and perceptions meeting problematic memory; Heaney's Leavisite stance in the face of contemporary critical currents; and Heaney's imagination approaching the imaginations of other poets.
