Seamus Heaney

Sadly, the poet Seamus Heaney recently passed away; there's a nice tribute to him in the Guardian by Colm Toibin.

I have always meant to read his translation of Beowulf; I can't remember who did the translation I read, but I didn't like it. I feel sure that if anyone's translation could make me like the work, it would be Heaney's. He was truly a master of words; it's such a sad loss for literature.
