I'm doing the same! If you're doing Skirrid hill by sheers, then there's some things that I can help you with

Seamus heaney's field work poetry is mainly based on War imagery from the troubles in Ireland, while Skirrid hill is based mainly on the deterioration of relationships.

But considering what I just said, there are poems about Heaney's love for his wife in his collection, while there are poems about world war two in Skirrid hill.

Sheers is extremely descriptive and is actually quite gory about his war poetry, while Heaney seems to be quite "gentle" with it, kinda not wanting to upset the reader.

I think there are more differences between them than similarities (that's my opinion) which is actually gives me a huge headache, as we are mostly taught how to spot the similarities more than the differences :unimpressed::unimpressed::unimpressed:

I hope this is helpful! It's been so hard trying to find study notes on Sheers because this is a new spec :argh: Hopefully you get more replies!

Sorry I cannot help. I was in Edinburgh when he spoke at the Book Festival a few years ago but missed the time to buy tickets. Something I regret.
