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."

Beggars can't be choosers, but this is NOT a book of W. B. Yeats' poems. It contains some play scripts, most of them poorly typeset, and quite fragmentary; any poetry consists of only a few obscure verses in the last ten or fifteen pages. Some form of electronic scanning must have been used in formatting this book into an e-book, but this has resulted in random computer code, perhaps ASCII, interrupting the text or forming entire and illegible passages unto themselves. After I submit this review, I will be deleting this from my library. No loss for me, as it is free, but maybe it will save someone the effort! Whoever put this out there should be embarassed.
