The poet and the piper [Enregistrement sonore]

Seamus Heaney
«Piping and poetry are surely of the essence of Ireland. Here, distilled to perfection, are Seamus Heaney and Liam O’ Flynn, both masters of their craft. Iit is not often we are given the opportunity to hear a poet recite his own verses.
The pipes and the poetry appear on separate tracks, but they blend well as a complete experience. The recording features traditional and contemporary music, lyrics and poetry such as An Bonnán Buí, one of the oldest known Irish traditional songs.
Seamus Heaney is widely recognized as one of the major poets of the 20th century. A native of Northern Ireland, Heaney was raised in County Derry, and later lived for many years in Dublin. He was the author of over 20 volumes of poetry and criticism, and edited several widely used anthologies. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995 "for works of lyrical beauty and ethical depth, which exalt everyday miracles and the living past." Heaney taught at Harvard University (1985-2006) and served as the Oxford Professor of Poetry (1989-1994). He died in 2013.» Réservation en ligne
