Seamus Heaney's 'Digging'

Heaney A new statue has been erected in Seamus Heaney's former town of Bellaghy in honor of his poem Digging. There's photos and the full story here--my favorite part is that the statue was started by being formed out of peat.

A couple years back we recorded Seamus Heaney reading Ted Hughes' The Thought Fox--you can (and should!) listen to it here.
