Description

'Follower', from his acclaimed debut collection 'Death of a Naturalist', the Irish poet Seamus Heaney recalls following his father as he expertly ploughed a field.

This lesson plan looks at Heaney's use of literal and figurative expressions, as well as his clever use of enjambment to complement the image of ploughing.

'Follower' by Seamus Heaney is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Love and Relationships' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
