Conway Stewart Series 58 Seamus Heaney

£ 365.00

This is a limited edition of 250 pens to celebrate the poem "The Conway Stewart" by Seamus Heaney.

Seamus Heaney was an Irish poet, playwright and translator. He received the 1995 Nobel Prize in Literature. American poet Robert Lowell described him as “the most important Irish poet since Yeats”, and many others, including the academic John Sutherland, have said that he was “the greatest poet of our age”. Upon his death in 2013, the British newspaper The Independent described him as “probably the best-known poet in the world”.

His twelfth and final poetry collection published in 2010 called "Human Chain" contains the poem on his Conway Stewart fountain pen.

We have tried to make this limited edition pen as close to the one described in the poem with a lever -fill, the 3 gold bands on the cap, and you can even choose it with a "Medium 14-carat nib" for that true authenticity. 

Each pen has the Conway Stewart logo engraved on the barrel , the words "The Seamus Heaney Pen" and the edition number of the pen. Based on the Conway Stewart Series 58  in the iconic Classic Green colour with 9ct gold rings, this is a beautiful pen. It is slightly smaller than some modern pens, harking back to an era when a fine writing instrument was judged first and foremost on practicality. Like its predecessors, this Seamus Heaney Pen tucks neatly away in any pocket, but with the cap posted, still balances perfectly in the hand.  

Each pen is housed in a Conway Stewart black leather presentation box which also serves as a showcase pen stand for your desk.

Available with a 14ct Gold Medium Conway Stewart Nib as per the poem!

In addition to selecting the nib width; you may further customise your nib to match your writing style, choosing from:

  • Italic
  • Left Oblique
  • Right Oblique
  • Stub
