Summary

Focusing on Seamus Heaney: Listen Now Again, a National Library of Ireland exhibition running for the next 3-5 years at the Bank of Ireland, College Green, Dublin, this chapter examines the process of curating and exhibiting Heaney’s archive. In exploring the transition from the private space of the writer’s room to the public place of the exhibition, the chapter probes the relationship between texts, contexts and objects in Heaney’s work. The chapter follows the trajectory of the exhibition from the earth-bound bog poems of Heaney’s early career to the airy transcendence of crediting marvels in his later work. It considers the aura of objects as well as the transformative relationship between Heaney’s creative inspiration, his writing process, the poetry and its referents.
