W.B. Yeats: Poetry
The Irish, Symbolist poet W.B. Yeats (1865–1939) is considered one of the foremost English-language literary figures of the twentieth century. Whether the lyrical and embroidered poems of his youth or the sparser, simplified work of his later years, his verse was spiritual, mystical, personal and universal. This covetable collection, with exquisite cover design, contains some of Yeats’ most treasured verse, from ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’ to ‘Sailing to Byzantium’.
