Re: RIP Seamus Heaney

Many thanks Seamus for your poetry and prose. May you Rest In Parnassus (and share a drink or two with Mr. Kavanagh). I stumbled upon this recently - a thesis examining the work of Leonard Cohen and Seamus Heaney: http://ecommons.usask.ca/bitstream/handle/10388/etd-12192008-183920/CaitlinWardMasters...
