Seamus Heaney translation of The Aeneid to be published next year

CATHERINE HEANEY, daughter of the late poet Seamus Heaney, has announced that a new translation by her father is to be published in March 2016.

Faber & Faber will publish Heaney’s translation of Book VI of The Aeneid almost three years after the death of one of Ireland’s most distinguished poets and authors.

Ms Heaney said: “This translation is the result of work and revisions carried out by him over many years – from the 1980s to the month before his death [in June 2013] – and the decision to publish it was one our family took after long and careful consideration.”
