The Conway Stewart Series 58 is a traditional sized pen that pays homage to one of the company’s classic models and this limited edition of 250 pens celebrating the poem "The Conway Stewart" by Seamus Heaney.
Please note: the medium nib is 14k gold like the original 58 and as mentioned in the poem, the fine nib is 18k.
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.
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.
