A wonderful collection of Yeats' poetry. The blurb contains all the stuff I would have said, so why bother repeating it? ( )

Three stars, Laurel?? I'll be the heretic with the Irish last name who docks Yeats for the weight of his pre-Easter Rebellion poetry--mostly dreary folkloric stuff. (Yes, still so much better than I can write myself:) I would rather read a slimmer volume of just the really really good stuff, which is, of course, astounding. ( )

Beautiful edition of my favorite poet. It's missing the added poems of W.B. Yeats The Poems, so I guess I'm keeping that hefty volume too. This one features illustrations by his brother, which are quite fine. ( )

The best of the best. ( )

I have given hourlong recitations of Yeats's poems, among the easiest to recall in English; for example, his tetrameters in the late "Under Ben Bulben" which contains his epitaph. I defy you to say this aloud three times without knowing most of it by heart: "Whether man die in his bed,/ Or the rifle knocks him dead,/ A brief parting from those dear/ Is the worst man has to fear." And his own epitaph is memorable, "Cast a cold eye/ On life, on death/ Horseman, pass by!" It is anti-conventional, since most epitaphs were written by clergy to scare the readers back to church, like this one in Pittsfield, MA: "Corruption, earth and worms/ Shall but refine this flesh..." etc. I seriously doubt the interred was consulted about that one. Yeats counters, look at this grave, and fogggetaboutit, Pass by!
By memory I still have "When you are old," his adaptation of Ronsard, "Lake Isle of Innisfree," so imitative of the water lapping the shores, in its medial caesuras, "I hear lake water lapping...Though I stand on the roadway..I shall arise and go now..." And so interesting that WBY first had a truism, "There noon is all a glimmer, and midnight a purple glow," which he reversed to the memorable, "There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon has a purple glow..." Ahh... a useful trick for writers. (My Ph.D. advisor Leonard Unger noted the influence of Meredith on Innisfree.) "The Second Coming," whose opening I said in my flight fears of landing. The problem in reciting that poem is "The worst are full of passionate intensity." I had to reduce the intensity of my aloudreading. "Sailing to Byzantium," and ohers.
I have also set to music seven of Yeats' poems, including "Brown Penny," "Lullaby," "Her Anxiety," and even "Crazy Jane talks to the Bishop." Some of these tunes, played decades ago, can be heard on my google+ page, no middle initial.
Yeats's son Michael, fathered in his late fifties, toured the US in the 70s. A friend in the Berkshires heard him recall his father mainly shooing him from the room to write or recite. Sounds accurate. (Maybe that's why Shakespeare lived in London, his kids in Stratford!)
I mentioned learning Yeats at Leonard Unger's knee, but also from Chester Anderson, Joycean and Irish specialist ( )

The classifying of Yeats' "Collected Poems" in its various editions is not an easy job, but mainly they can be divided into three groups.

1. Collected Poems, 1933. There were earlier collected editions called simply "Poems" (1895, 1905, 1910) but this one near the end of his life was the first intended as a career collection. However, it is not complete, as Yeats lived until 1939, publishing three more volumes of poetry; in addition "Last Poems" (which he had prepared) was published shortly after his death ("the day of his death was a cold, dark day"). Nonetheless, the incomplete 1933 Collected Poems is still with us -- the Wordsworth Poetry Series editions, usually issued as "Poetical Works" but sometimes called "Works of W.B. Yeats" or just "Collected Poems" -- but all bearing the same ISBN 1853264032, do not contain the full Collected Poems through 1939 but only the contents of the 1933 volume. These have been separated into their own entry with a clarifying if somewhat clunky title.

2. Collected Poems (1940 - ). This is the 'normal' Collected Poems, containing all the volumes of Yeats' poetry through 1939. From 1940 through the early 1980s (with very minor corrections, revisions and additions) this was the standard hardback Collected Poems of Yeats, and it continues to be standard paperback edition. These are generally called just "Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats"

3. Then in 1983 was issued the inaugural volume of "The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats" -- "Volume I: The Poems". This added to the 'normal' Collected Poems text 137 pages of previously uncollected poems, from magazines, letters, embedded in prose works, etc etc. When you buy the hardback Collected Poems of Yeats now, this is what you get (as noted above the paperback edition continues tp offer the 1940-1982 text). So, this greatly expanded edition has also been separated out and is entitled The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats: Volume I, The Poems.. It can be identified by the US isbn 0684839350 (9780684839356) or the UK isbn 0333353617.

Please try to place or combine your Collected Poems of Yeats with the proper edition.
