Seamus Heaney (1939-2013) received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1995. I saw the Cure at Troy at the American Players Theater in Spring Green, WI this September and fell in love. His poems, plays, translations, and essays include Opened Ground, Electric Light, Beowulf, The Spirit Level, District and Circle, and Finders Keepers. Robert Lowell praised Heaney as the "most important Irish poet since Yeats. I've been a Heaney fan for years and the power and deceptive simplicity of his poetry comes through in his re-write of Sophocles' Philoctetes. I was so moved that I taught it instead of Julius Cesar in my 10th Grade English class.
The Cure at Troy book. Seamus Heaney's take on Sophocles' Philoctetes is shockingly accurate and modern at the same time, retelling the myth of the marooned Greek hero with all the detail of the ancient myth, but in a distinctly individual and contemporary voice! As in Human Chain and other poetry collections, Heaney excels at producing maximum effect with a few words, evoking a whole life story in a few laments.
Human beings suffer, They torture one another, They get hurt and get hard. No poem or play or song Can fully right a wrong Inflicted and endured. The innocent in gaols Beat on their bars together. A hunger-striker’s father Stands in the graveyard dumb. The police widow in veils Faints at the funeral home. History says, don’t hope On this side of the grave. But then, once in a lifetime The longed-for tidal wave Of justice can rise up, And hope and history rhyme. So hope for a great sea-change On the far side of revenge. Believe that further shore Is reachable from here
