The Poems The Collected Works of W B Yeats #1

Revised and corrected this edition includes Yeats's own notes on his poetry complemented by exp. Yeats is a really interest poet to explore primarily because his distinction in retrospect not at the time from other poets is largely in subject matter rather than style Overall he is a typical structural modernist and most of his poems didn t really feel uniue in their aesthetic or even in their poetic flare This was the biggest drag for me not that Yeats isn t an exceptional poet but just that after reading a lot of classic and contemporary poetry there isn t much about Yeats specifically that sets him apartHowever his subjects are compelling The most famous Irish poet Yeats talks extensively about Irish folklore and mythology implements classic tales and heroes without shying away from contemporary topics Yeats was a clearly pre confessional poet As much as I love confessional poetry it s sort of a breath of fresh air to hear a certain objectivity and disconnect from him an air of storytellingAll in all a good collection of good poetry Not my favorite but it all comes down to personal preference
