Click the link above or the image below for the actual conversation between Paul Muldoon and the late, great Seamus Heaney.
My graduation day at Queen’s University Belfast was graced by an honorary guest, a Queen’s Alumnus himself, the wonderful poet Paul Muldoon. How exhilarating then to find this lovely video of Paul Muldoon in conversation with our sadly deceased Seamus Heaney. Please enjoy this clip from the New Yorker Festival a couple of years ago.
Do also please look up some of their work for a truly uplifting take on life and the search for ‘true understanding’, a term Heaney was often heard to quote from Basho’s definition of poetry.
