Seamus Heaney at Wofford

Written By: Phillip Stone - Sep• 03•13

I’ve been digging in the files today for photos or clippings about Seamus Heaney’s visits to Wofford.  The Nobel laureate in literature and arguably Ireland’s most famous literary figure of the present day died recently.

Heaney spoke at Wofford on two occasions.  This poster is from his 1984 visit to the campus.

Heaney’s visits came about through his connections with Dr. Dennis Dooley, professor of English and founding director of the Wofford Writer’s Series.
