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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a must have book for any Yeats lover, or some one studying William Butler Yeats for a school report or such. The Book has almost everything you can possibley want, tuns of poems. Although I found Volume 4 of the collected Yeats poems the best, because its short, but full, warm and inviting, and has 4 plays. (but i can't find it on amazon to review)

All I can say is fall in love with her, read her "He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven" and she will be yours.
