• Seamus Heaney Remembered - and read by President Clinton

LA Times: Seamus Heaney dies at 74; Irish poet won Nobel Prize for literature >>

"We lucky poets who were invited to the Clinton White House for that Millenial evening in 1998 - did indeed get a chance to chat with the President about Poetry. He had been reciting passages of great poems all night - and he and Hillary Clinton each recited their "favorite poem", as part of then-Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky's national initiative. So no one had to ask him if he ever read poetry! Clinton asked a few of us if we'd ever read Seamus Heaney's translation of Sophocles, "The Cure at Troy" - and there was silence. Before anyone could attempt an answer, Clinton recited Heaney's translations of the famous lines about Hope -- alluded to in the LA Times story below. Clinton understood something about Heaney's influence - close to what Shelley opined when he claimed that "Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world." - CMD
