One Response to Rilke: After the Fire by Seamus Heaney

  1. Tomas Lucas - Guido Ciccone - Tomas Burgio says:

    1) Nature is the one that notices the sudden change that has happened overnight, showing nature changing, becoming darker. “emptiness behind scorched linden trees”.

    2) Rilke is a man whose past has been destroyed overnight and he is suddenly alienated
    from his enviroment.
