Analysis of Storm on the Island by Seamus Heaney

English Literature



6m 43s

Seamus Heaney's poem, Storm on the Island, is a poem about the power of nature, places it in context with Northern Ireland and uses language that makes us think of war. We look at the structure of the poem and make suitable comparisons within the cluster, including The Prelude, or perhaps Bayonet Charge.
