Podcast #153 – Edward O’Shea
This week we interview Edward O’Shea, a State University of New York at Oswego Emeritus English Professor and author of Seamus Heaney’s American Odyssey. Published by Routledge Press in December 2022, this biography explores the 40 years that Irish poet Seamus Heaney spent in America. O’Shea has served as a Fulbright Fellow at Presidency College in Kolkata, India, and he was a Fulbright Specialist at Trinity College in Dublin. During that appointment, he made presentations at the Heaney “Listen Now Again” exhibition in Dublin, and at Trinity College, Queens University in Belfast. Edward O’Shea was interviewed by fellow biographer and BIO member Kitty Kelley.
