Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Yeats Reader is the first single volume to encompass the full range of William Butler Yeats's talents. It presents over a hundred and fifty of Yeats's best-known poems, plus eight plays, a sampling of his prose tales, and excerpts from his published autobiographical and critical writings. In addition, an appendix offers six early texts of poems that Yeats later revised. Also included are selections from the memoirs left unpublished at his death and complete introductions written for the unpublished Scribner Edition of his collected works. The Yeats Reader also includes detailed notes and a chronology of the life.
