    " You don't have to believe in Yeats's peculiar metaphysics to love his poetry. At his best, he is clear, direct, and entirely understandable. And when he does lapse into the opaque, the sound of his language is so transcendent that you can well allow the meaning to slip a little. My three-poet desert island library has room for Willy, right alongside Chaucer and Shakespeare. What a blessing for the English-speaking world that Yeats's nationalist fervor never took him to the point of writing Irish! "

    " Anyone interested in the human condition needs to read this. You witnes the progresion o f a sensitve, ideal, romantic youg man become gradually stripped of all he held on his pedestal and have to continually re-invent himself to stay afloat. It's all in here. The hope and degradatoin of love and lovers, the progression and regressions of a poverty struck Ireland with wars and terrorism, mysticism and the disappointment it brings, blood, guts and even some t&a. So what he flirted with facism and eugenics in his final years? For his almost 6 decades of service and labor to poetry, philosophy and beauty I think we can allow the old aristocrat some faults. I suggest starteing with "The Wind in the Reeds" and reading it straight through. Yeats is a genius in the true sense, he had to make himself one through labor, patience and grace. "

    " One of the greatest poets to ever live! And Irish to boot:) "
