Heaney shares a glossary of north-east Antrim words from a poetry collection by John Hewitt.

Heaney enjoys sharing with listeners a glossary of north-east Antrim words from 'The Rain Dance', a new collection of poetry by Northern Ireland writer John Hewitt. As Heaney puts it,

words that open in my own memory like little songs.

Throughout his career, Hewitt has sought to find speech that reflects the people on the ground.
