Yeats ✓ 0 review Revised and corrected this edition includes Yeats's own notes on his poetry complemented by exp. Yeats is a really interest poet to explore primarily because his distinction in retrospect not at the time from other poets is largely in subject matter rather than style Overall he is a typical structural modernist and most of his poems didn t really feel uniue in their aesthetic or even in their poetic flare This was the biggest drag for me not that Yeats isn t an exceptional poet but just that after reading a lot of classic and contemporary poetry there isn t much about Yeats specifically that sets him apartHowever his subjects are compelling The most famous Irish poet Yeats talks extensively about Irish folklore and mythology implements classic tales and heroes without shying away from contemporary topics Yeats was a clearly pre confessional poet As much as I love confessional poetry it s sort of a breath of fresh air to hear a certain objectivity and disconnect from him an air of storytellingAll in all a good collection of good poetry Not my favorite but it all comes down to personal preference

This is a beautiful edition The book as a physical object alone deserves five stars So much has been written about Yeats that it s often hard to get past the critical babble to the actual poems What this does beautifully is to make all the poems availableWhen I was at school Yeats was simply The Greatest Poet of the Twentieth century The swing against him as Ideological criticism became the dominant mode convicted his character of a wide variety of sinsaristocratic snobbish elitist right wing spirit mumbler dabbler in fascism As Seamus Heaney said in Stepping Stones Of course he and his work will be assailed but they are ready for it If ever there was an oeuvre that can take a hammering that s even daring you have a go at it it s Yeats The rereadings and reactions haven t knocked him askew they ve just helped us to know ourselves and him better This collected invites the reader to begin at the beginning with a dreamy slightly unreal Yeats with his idealised Lover and follow him through his life through the politics and the political and artistic career through the obsessions with Maud G his marriage to arrive at that old man who could write that famous last poem it s almost impossible to imagine his younger self acceptingAs you do so you can watch the style develop see the great poems in their settings and unlike a selected get an idea of Yeats surprising range A substantial section of notes is provided but one of the characteristics of Yeats poems is that as Bunting said unlike Eliot or Pound he didn t expect his readers to live in books so the poems are almost always self explanatory
