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. The poem talks about how America after getting to the shores of California realizes that there is no more room for expansion left and this makes it stand in awe looking at the adjacent lands to answer if there are more opportunities left.
