This production is a bonus pack: not only will listeners be immersed in the transcendent, elegant poetry of the great Irish poet Yeats, but they will also hear it intoned by a quartet of readers (Jim Norton, Denys Hawthorne, Nicholas Boulton, and Marcella Riordan) who possess marvelous, lilting Irish accents. Add to this an incisive commentary on the life of Yeats, and you have a great man, shown in full. Especially appropriate for students, this sound experience will be a pleasure for anyone prepared to wander through the romantic life, loves, politics, mythologies, and mystical experiences of an early 20th-century everyman who speaks as clearly to our day as he did to his own. Highly recommended.-Mark Pumphrey, Polk Cty. P.L., Columbus, NC Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
