Even though like “Poem at Thirty Nine”, admiration towards the poets’ ancestors is shown, in “Digging”, Healey has not followed his ancestor’s paths, and becomes a writer instead of a digger. As reflected in the last two lines, “The squat pen rests. I’ll dig with it.”, the author hopes to use literature to show the toughness that his father and grandfather once
