Rogers was raised in the country where he spent many lonely times in solitude and as his parents felt that they did not want their children to be influenced by society their children had very little opportunity to mix with other young people. This lack of contact from an early age had a pyscholosophical effect on Rogers who, in later life, identified his poor self-confidence and social skills on his childhood and teenage years. When he was nineteen years old and through his father’s influence of religion, Rogers decided to that he wanted to be a Christian minister. To prepare him, he enrolled to study history at the University of Wisconsin During his time there, he met a group of likeminded students whose home and religious back ground were similar to his own.

Mid-Term Break The poem is about the death of Heaney's infant brother (Christopher) and how people (including himself) reacted to this. The poem's title suggests a holiday but this “break” does not happen for pleasant reasons. For most of the poem Heaney writes of people's unnatural reactions, but at the end he is able to grieve honestly. The boredom of waiting appears in the counting of bells but “knelling” suggests a funeral bell, rather than a bell for lessons. The modern reader may be struck by the neighbours' driving the young Seamus home - his parents may not have a car (quite usual then - Heaney was born in 1939, and is here at boarding school, so this is the 1950s) or, more likely, were too busy at home, and relied on their neighbours to help.
