5.0 von 5 Sternen The mastery of the most influential poet of this century
It is hard to dispute Yeats' status as the most influential poet in the 20th century. His wit and articulate voice covers almost every facet of our society today. This book simply presents W.B. in all of his glory, allowing the reader to view every poem simply and purely, as they were intended to be seen.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Remarkably... mediocre
William Butler Yeats is about as bad a poet one can be and still be considered "great". All of his poems are earnest and sincere, but they are totally appalling in Yeats's lack of control of language. The ideas of his poems are instructive, prophetic, and occasionally moving, particularly as he grew older, but as a technical writer he was, 98% of the time,...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Yeats's Second Coming, 30. Juni 1997
Von Ein Kunde
It has long seemed that although Yeat is the best poet in English in our century, Eliot wrote the best poem. For "The Waste Land" captured a spiritual doubt and hunger that started between the wars and remained with us as a kind of heavy inertia; how can we make our lives meaningful, Eliot asked, and showed us that we have no idea where to start. But now such lethargy seems almost quaint; we don't now doubt what to do, but rather we do and doubt where it shall take us. What if all our global, unified and unifying efforts are taking us somewhere terrible? Yeats's poem "The Second Coming" now seems the true herald of our time.

Finneran's edition includes this poem in context, in its order in the development of Yeats's work. Read it as Yeat meant it to be read: followed by his equally great poem "A Prayer for my Daughter," where he offers hope in the beauty and innocence of personal ceremony. In a crowded, generic time, Yeats's poems are themselves ceremonies.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Worth the time., 10. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I began reading Yeat's collected poems twenty-five years ago and still turn to them regularly. The best ones do not fade with time but provide increasing enjoyment.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Donne, Shakespeare, and ... Yeats?, 16. September 1999
Yeats is, quite simply, the greatest master of the English language since Shakespeare. His command, range, and intelligence are remarkable. From his smallest poems to the lengthier ones such as "Under Ben Bulben", he weilds a pen with the mark of the truest artist whose work I have engaged deeply. As wily as Joyce, as visionary as the Romantics, and with a silvery ear for the language that can only be compared with the likes of Donne, Milton and Shakespeare, Yeats is the greatest poet of the 20th Century, to say the least. His influence is broad, and the scope of his work--from effete Romanticism to violent realism--is even broader.

Yeats schreibt tolles Gedichte, die man einmal gelesen haben sollte. Sein Englisch ist super leicht verständlich, sodass auch Schüler mit ihrem Schulenglisch keine Probleme haben sollten ihn zu verstehen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Handy and well-structured, 14. November 2009
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats (Wordsworth Poetry Library) (Taschenbuch)
This book offers the reader a selected range of poems written by William Butler Yeats, an Irish writer, who occupies himself mostly with the Irish heritage and Irish folklore. Due to the mystic elements and Yeats's belief that people can be reincarnated the poems are sometimes a little bit hard to grasp, but once the background is established, the peoms are very enjoyable.

The book itself has a stable paperback jacket, a nice short introduction, a list of texts in the book divided in the genres "Lyrical" with the different compilations of poems like "The Tower" or "The Rose". In the back of the book there are also some few "Narrative" and "Dramatic" texts as for example "Two Kings" or "The Wanderings of Oisin".

Only critique is that the font size is somewhat small, but this is made up for by the nice presentation of the pieces of art. It's handy paperback format makes it ideal for grabing and taking along. What is maybe also a key issue is that it is affordable.

I recommend this book to everyone who likes mystics and is not afraid to open his or her mind to celtic folklore and the new approach Yeats provides the reader with.
