Abstract
Seamus Heaney opens this interview, recorded on January 26, 1984, with a reading of his poem "Digging." He discusses growing up in Ulster, Northern Ireland as a Catholic in a hostile political and cultural climate. Heaney discusses Irish poetry, culture, and tradition as well as writing in English rather than his native Irish.
