A Glossary of Seamus Heaney's Hearth Language: From Aftergrass to Yellow Boots

SKU: 364215376135191

‘Hearth language is the language we learn, and use, at first within the family and then, as our horizons widen, within the local community. In these places we are secure, at home and understood.’

For generations, the English spoken in Seamus Heaney’s South Derry homeland has been uniquely influenced by Irish, Scots Gaelic, Lowland Scots, Anglo Saxon and Elizabethan English.

In this timely and enlightening new glossary, poetess Maura Johnston examines and explains the hearth language used by Seamus Heaney in his poetry and plays - from 'aftergrass' to 'yellow boots'.

This book hopes to enrich the reading experience of both new and seasoned students of Seamus Heaney’s work and to help preserve a wondrous dialect.
