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".

Marvelously well read
Sound quality is excellent. The actor's reading is absolutely superb. I do not understand why iTunes issues recordings such as this without a proper index and means of accessing particular poems at will. Yet, I will not hold that against this marvelous recording of one of my favorite poets.
