    One thought on “Poetry, Drama and Prose”

    1. For the selections I read, I would give this collection about a 3.5, but looking at it as an entire overview of Yeat s major works along with critical background I went with 4 stars rather than 3 I am a big fan of Norton critical editions I ve been a Norton supporter since undergrad , because they tend to pull together a lot of interesting and relevant background and critical material in addition to some of the most important and influential texts in the field of English lit.As far as the Yeats [...]

    2. It s Yeats I had the help of a professor to get me through this volume, thankfully, because you need to know a lot about Irish history and Yeats philosophy to even barely understand his poetry I was reminded of one of my favorite Yeats poems recently when I read it in The Lake of Dead Languages by Goodman Here s the last stanza I will arise and go now, for always night and dayI hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,I hear it i [...]

    3. Mostly read the poetry I prefer the early Yeats, which is lyric and stereotypically fairies, misty lakes, and Erie.

    4. It is difficult to know what to say about a writer as iconic as Yeats, and of course the poems speak for themselves for better in most cases, for worse in some , so what I suppose this volume contributes, like most Norton Critical Editions, is a one volume precis of sorts designed to whet the appetite of the would be scholar or satisfy that of the less avidly interested reader of letters This volume does an admirable job of providing substantial, but not overwhelming, examples of Yeats poetry, p [...]

    5. This is designed as the text for a college course on Yeats, with of course some great poems, a lot of other poems that do nothing for me, snippets from some of his drama and prose, and about a third of the book extracts from critical work about Yeats of the sort I find incredibly dreary God only know why I stuck it out to the end.

    6. i don t know if it was plath who brought me to yeats or vice versa that one is a bit like the chicken and the egg at the end of the day though i guess it doesn t really matter, because both are really tasty does that make plath fried chicken and yeats scrambled eggs, or vice versa oh, right enough of that line of thought i think yeats would be smacking his forehead right now if he read this say something worthwhile, the second coming is a brutal masterpiece, but that s not all he has to offer if [...]

    7. Sometimes, I really wish Yeats had never written prose Or plays His poetry is quite good, obviously, although I know that I find him very difficult to read because it is nearly impossible for me to find the rhythm of his language with very few exceptions Still, this is a good selection of poems etc and the background information except for one or two literary crit pieces that are a little too this is a piece of literary criticism is very handy Good footnotes, which I always appreciate

    8. There aren t as many familiar Yeats poems as I expected, but the ones that are familiar are hauntingly so.

    9. Yeats isn t much of a playwright, but his poetry is amazing, and hardhence the Nobel Prize attached to his name His poetry is still quoted today
