  1. Barney, a very nice piece which I think the great man would have enjoyed. Mind you, he would probably have called you a fecking eggit for thinking you could influence his work! That said I am pleased to think that your small drop of influence has infused the literary world.

    • I was certainly an eejit, no doubt about that. As for influencing the great Heaney, I would love to think so but the truth is that he was probably already considering a Beowulf translation and was just interested to bump into someone who knew a tiny bit about it.
