This compelling collection spans Yeats's career: from the poems of his early years, which display his interest in Irish myths and his hopeless passion for Irish patriot Maud Gonne, to the soaring, majestic poems of his old age. Works of precision, economy and sensuous, lyrical beauty, they include "The Lake Isle of Innisfree," "The Wild Swans at Coole," "Byzantium," and "Leda and the Swan."

About the Author

William Butler Yeats (1865–1939) was an Irish poet and dramatist who was born and educated in Dublin. He is generally considered one of the twentieth century’s key English language poets. In 1923 he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Literature for “inspired poetry, which in a highly artistic form gives expression to the spirit of a whole nation.” He was the first Irishman so honored.
