William Butler Yeats was a powerhouse of Irish poetry starting a renaissance in that country with the wondrous beauty of his poetry. We have here a lovely edition of this book, which also includes an active table of contents, making it easy to find a particular poem.

Yeats took in supernatural beliefs in his life and incorporated them in his poetry, as well as using quite a lot of symbolism. Using Irish legends and folktales he created some of the most loved poetry there is and is rightly considered one of the greatest poets of the 20th Century. As you read this book you get a feel for the Emerald Isle and its history, from a natural viewpoint as well as one that weaves the legends of the landscape and people into its structure, and some of the poems here widen this into other places and times.

I studied Yeats during my A-Level lit and loved him then! This was a bit of a trip down memory lane and well worth it. These early poems are steeped in Irish myth and legend and therefore historically of value as well as being beautiful, lyrical and aesthetically lovely!
A must for Yeats and Irish Literature fans.

Try Coole Swan cream liqueur and enjoy a glass whilst reading this wonderful book from where the liqueur derives its name
