"Lovely"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I am not a great poetry fan, I am however a lover of two poets. One is Wilfred Owen and the other is William Butler Yeats.
This wee volume is an excellent collection of the laters work and quite comprehensive. at it's modest price it is a delightful wee volume, cloth bound with a ribbon marker and gilt edging, it aspires to a kind of classicism in it's aesthetic and while not entirely hitting the mark – the gilt seems a little ‘thin’ and thus a little gaudy – it is reminiscent of the ‘oxford classics’ series of the post war years in every other respect.

Description

As well as being one of the major literary figures of the twentieth century, William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) is the greatest lyric poet that Ireland has produced. He was the acknowledged leader of the Irish Literary Renaissance, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923. His early lyrical poetry includes 'When You are Old', 'The Cloths of Heaven' and 'The Lake Isle of Innisfree' but, unusually for a poet, Yeats's later work surpasses the poems of his youth. This volume contains all the poems from the 1933 edition of Collected Poems, the last anthology to be published in the poet's lifetime. With an Introduction by Dr Robert Mighall.
