Nobel Prize-winning poet and playwright to hold residency in spring 2014
In 1997, The New York Times
proclaimed that poetry appreciators have “reason to rejoice at living in the age when Seamus Heaney is writing.” And next spring, literary Dickinsonians will have even more cause for celebration when Heaney returns to campus through the Harold and Ethel L. Stellfox Visiting Scholars and Writers Program.
The world-renowned poet and playwright's spring 2014 Stellfox residency, which will include readings, workshops and small-group discussions with students, will mark Heaney's third visit to campus since 1993 and his first visit since earning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995.
