Old Poetry Praise @ 07-01-2003, 11:09 AM

Irish poet and Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney has praised the lyrical talents of Eminem, claiming the rap star has "sent a voltage around a generation".

Speaking Norwich this week, Heaney said Eminem - who has previously attracted condemnation for his often misogynistic and homophobic lyrics - displayed a "verbal energy".

According to the Daily Telegraph, Heaney singled out Eminem when asked if there was a figure of popular culture that aroused interest in poetry and lyrics like musicians such as Bob Dylan and John Lennon once did.

"There is this guy Eminem. He has created a sense of what is possible," he said.

"He has sent a voltage around a generation. He has done this not just through his subversive attitude but also his verbal energy."

Eminem, who recently completed the UK leg of his Anger Management Tour, won an Academy Award earlier this year for 'Lose Yourself' - the track that accompanied his semi-autobiographical movie debut.

He was also recently named the second most powerful celebrity in the world in a list compiled by US business magazine Forbes.
