“O’Brien uses his wide-ranging knowledge of critical theory to illuminate Heaney’s positions on ideological and aesthetic issues, and to put Heaney’s writing in the context of the European intellectual tradition.”
—Henry Hart, Mildred and J. B. Hickman Professor of Humanities, College of William and Mary
“Establishes a new and much richer paradigm for understanding this crucial dimension of Heaney’s oeuvre.”
—Andrew J. Auge, author of A Chastened Communion: Modern Irish Poetry and Catholicism.
