Student’s name Instructor’s name Course Date Figurative language used in the poems Digging and Facing west from California shores. In this essay, I analyze the work of Seamus Heaney and Walt Whitman in the poems entitled Digging and Facing west from California shores respectively. In the poem digging, Heaney introduces us to his lineage, that is, his father and grandfather who were staunch farmers in their prime age. The speaker is very proud and respectful of their right work in farming; he admires what they did and the determination they put in place, which translated to quality results. Several years after their dismissal, Heaney still wishes to keep their legacy of hard work and determination alive but this time not following their path of using a spade to cultivate the land but using his pen as a tool to dig into writing, a career different from what his ancestors did. The poem Facing west from California shores has several meanings, but in this assignment, I will refer to it as a representation of the events that took place during the American history precisely the conversion of California to one of its states.
