AbstractSeamus Heaney is considered as one of the most popular poets, writing in English today. Although he wrote in a traditional simple style, his poetry is endowed with a special interest with the past, which was one of continuity for him. Thus, he refers recurrently to hid childhood in County Derry, where he was born and to Irish history in general. He tells the Catholics in Northern Ireland to stop contemplating their wounds and start thinking of the future.

Languages have different means of communication, some of which are verbal and nonverbal. For the sake of expressing, stating, asking, emphasizing certain types of information , we sometimes tend to use some of these verbal or nonverbal means either directly or indirectly. Therefore, scholars and rhetoricians have studied most of these means and the properties that can affect speakers to select a highly effective discourse in order to get a successful understanding of meaning in its literal sense as well as to choose the correct lexis to unambiguously comprehend the intended meaning. They also tackle the ways of getting a persuasive discourse by using different expressions, some of which are syntactic, semantic, pragmatic, poetic, etc. One of these expressions is Rhetorical Question (henceforth RQ).
