Seamus Heaney 's poem and childhood recollection, Follower, depicts the admiration and respect he feels towards his father. Throughout the poem, the vivid description of his father working the fields goes from displaying Heaney’s idolization to expressing his numerous shortfallings to live up to his father 's legacy.
