The context of this poem is dually ambiguous in its divine content yet seemingly blasphemously abhorrent and abominable in its delivery with chic eloquence. Simply put, and to avoid ranting, the gargantuous monotony of this poem alludes to the overall state of dismay of the impoverished conditions of the oppressed irish youth, deeply scarred by a motley multitude of angst and shocking apprehension towards the infamous and injust resurrection of the futile and terminal nature of life as a whole. In short, the existential value of this poem cherishes the sacred existence of those less fortunate to be graced by the almighty revelation that arrives with deep pondering of navvy exultations.

personally i can't stand seamus heaney's work, he makes my english lessons boring and depressing. he make a big drama about things that don't effect him and even if they do effect him they are simple every day things. i have analysed 3 of his poems and i have one piece of advise for him: stop moaning you ungrateful failure of a poet.

This has probably gone on long enough, but I'll still say this anyway: most of the greatest writers did not construct their literature to please someone else, especially poets. From my understanding, poets write what they see, their emotions, and memories. Great poets will not only tell about them, but show you them. I live in the US, have all my life, and do not have 1% of Irish blood in me. However Heaney's poems open my eyes to his experiences, the good and the terrible, and allow me to connect with him. Whether you like the poem or not is your own opinion and should not be forced upon other people. Let others make that decision for themselves.

On a personal note, I really enjoy reading Heaney's poems. The ones I have read all seem to capture a double meaning within them. Also his descriptiveness (especially in Blackberry-Picking) overwhelms the senses and sucks you into his world. That is what I think a great poet should be able to do.
