    shame. 'death of a naturalist' was a great poem, and his translation of beowulf was good too (well, my quondam english teacher recommended it for her class, and i think she knows what she's doing).

    His funeral is in the Northern Irish town of Bellaghy, where he lived with his family. My friend's dad lived down the road from the Heaneys.
