Lasting Impact

I believe Seamus Heaney's most significant peice of work is Death of a Natrualist. I say this beacause this poem can relate to everyone. The poem is about being a child and seeing the world as though it is full of advernture, then growing up and seeing it for how it really is. In one part of this poem Seamus states how he believe the frogs would soon seek revenge for him taking thier young. As if childhood is full of small problems (such as this one) that could easlily be fixed if you look at it in a real sence. Seamus once said "...and I gew up fostered alike by beauty and by fear." i bealieve that in this poem he truly expresses both the beauty and frea through his childhood.
