An autograph postcard signed by the Nobel Prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney (1939-2013) to Colin Steele, University Librarian at the Australian National University from 1980 to 2002
Dated 18 August 2000, it is written on the verso of a British Library postcard which reproduces the manuscript (circa 1400) of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. It is a less-than-routine response to a very mundane request, and it is short (and worthy) enough to quote in full: 'Forgive this long delay in returning the signed slips. I tipped your letter into a "personal" pile, which meant you were treated like a friend, which means I carry the letters with me and don't answer them, but mean to ...'. The postcard, sent inside an envelope (not present), is in very fine condition.
