April is National Poetry month, and DA has a history of appreciation. Irish poet Seamus Heaney has visited DA several times over the years. He had strong connections with former poet-in-residence Peter Fallon and English Department veterans Robert McGlynn, Frank Henry, John O’Brien, and Tim Engelland. He visited Deerfield in 1996, a year after he received the Nobel Prize in Literature.
