Revised and corrected this edition includes Yeats's own notes on his poetry complemented by exp The only thing I can think to say about WB Yeats is that despite the controversy that has enshrouded him for almost a century he is not one of those poets you either love or hate If I were to read this collection from cover to cover exhaustive annotations included I won t ever do this by the way it s likely that I would come out really ambivalent In fact you don t even need to read the fucking book Just take a really good Anglo Irish Lit class and the lectures on Yeats s life can t avoid the fact that he turned into a crotchety old manMuch like Wordsworth Yeats turned into a real bastard The youth and occasional naivet he embraced in his early work and probably his most immediately mellifluous was an object of so much contempt in his later life It was for a very real reason His mistake in the spirit of my irresolute opinion of the man I only call it a mistake when I m in a bad mood was that the things that made him write were the things of political life If you know anything about Ireland in the early 20th Century you know it was a political and militaristic disaster an everyday torrent of explosions and gunfire and homemade bombs and shit Over the years Yeats began to feel almost responsible for the political strife that continued to plague his beloved country Having one of the most remarkable bodies of work in the English language and yes probably inspiring a lot of people to make irresponsible choices in the defense of their Ireland disenchanted him The man speaking in his poems suffers but his poems don tIt s just a matter of taste but one that doesn t have to be acuired through such a comprehensive collection If you re not an Anglo Irish nut like I am I suggest you opt for the Collected Poems edited by Richard Finneran
