Seamus Heaneys Portrayal of the Loss of Innocence :: Poems, Poetry

Heaney particually portrays the piece of loss of innocence as a child through his peoms, Death of a Natrualist, Blackberry picking, Poem and Personal Helicon. Death of a Naturalsit of the starting line of Heaneys verse forms to really express this theme. All year round the flax-dam festered in the shopping mall -------------------------------------------------- of the townlandgreen and heavey headed --------------------------------------- Flax rotted there. In the first stanza Heaney uses rich imagery and purpose-made child-like language much(prenominal) as festered and warm thick slobber. These create a sniff out of the childlike adventure to be put in the surrounding heavens and time that he had as a child. The language and images created by Heaney befriend to engage the readers senses. These, although not always pleaseant images portray the excitement to be found as a child. They are as well positive and fresah. As the poem progresse s into the following stanza there is a destinct change in the mood of the peom. The duck soup was thick with a bass chorus Agaijn Heaney uses rich imagery to explain his point. Phrases such as angry frogs tell how his feeling towards them as a child has changed and at once they seem angry rather then the nimble swimming tadpoles that thery were before. Heaney expresses this change in constitution as the change of season as wel for him as the actual changin from puerility into adult life. Once innocent and stimulating images have changed into aggressive and dour things. The title of this poem in itself holds the theme strongly. Death of a Naturalist suggests his interest in nature dying and being replaced with more adult feelings. Death of a Naturalist also liks closely to Heaneys poem Blackburry picking. The poem follows the similar two stanza approach, with the first being full of childhood positives and the second folloing on to more nagative im ages n nature. This poem however focuses in more on nature itself and his perspecive. you ate that first one and its fleesh was sweet
