LONDON — Seamus Heaney, the Nobel Prize-winning poet whose crystalline, descriptive verse led many to consider him the best Irish poet since Yeats, died Thursday. He was 74.

His death was confirmed by his publishers, Faber and Faber, which said that it could not “adequately express our profound sorrow at the loss of one of the world’s greatest writers. His impact on literary culture is immeasurable.”
