Abstract

The Coda frames the poet himself as a memory site by exploring the memorial culture that has emerged since his death. Since 2013 there has been a proliferation of memorials. The commemorative practices range from the textual (elegies, eulogies and special journal editions) to the monumental (for instance, a purpose-built museum, Seamus Heaney HomePlace, in the village in which he was born). The Coda considers how these commemorative practices shape the legacy of Seamus Heaney.
