Revue de presse

"My favourite poet is Yeats, who in my book is the greatest since Shakespeare" (Michael Longley)

"His verse is inspired;his poetic persona is magnificent... He created a poetry both lyrical and demotic, melodic and rhetorical" (Peter Ackroyd The Times) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

This Wordsworth Edition includes a new exclusive Introduction by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.

W. B. Yeats was Romantic and Modernist, mystical dreamer and leader of the Irish Literary Revival, Nobel prizewinner, dramatist and, above all, poet. He began writing with the intention of putting his 'very self' into his poems. T. S. Eliot, one of many who proclaimed the Irishman's greatness, described him as 'one of those few whose history is the history of their own time, who are part of the consciousness of an age which cannot be understood without them'. For anyone interested in the literature of the late nineteenth century and the twentieth century, Yeats's work is essential.

This volume gathers the full range of his published poetry, from the hauntingly beautiful early lyrics (by which he is still fondly remembered) to the magnificent later poems which put beyond question his status as major poet of modern times. Paradoxical, proud and passionate, Yeats speaks today as eloquently as ever.

This is a beautiful book. If you buy books for their content and not their binding, this is for you, students or poetry lovers. Not a book to sleep on a shelf but a book to be carried around, read in the bus, lent to others. Not expansive doesn't mean cheap, there is more to it than meets the eye.

I'm really delighted with this product. I have received it without delay. The cover is different than on the picture on the website but it's not important. The right one is even better.

HASH(0xa2ea25dc) étoiles sur 5 A good edition of a great poet 4 octobre 2002
Par Russ Mayes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There isn't much question whether Yeats was a great poet, just where on the all time great list he falls. Whether you call him the greatest poet of the 20th century, or the greatest since Wordsworth, Milton or Shakespeare, his accomplishments are clear.
Beyond that, why should anyone buy this edition as opposed to any of the other available? First, the collected poems gives you a sense of his development and interests, not just the highlights of his greates poems. Second, and more importantly, this edition is well-annotated by Finneran. The notes are thorough without being unduly interpretive--they tell you what an allusion refers to, not how it affects the meaning of the poem. The notes aim to be useful to any reader, regardless of background. As a result, western readers will come across odd sounding notes such as "Jesus Christ is the founder of Christianity" or "Hamlet is the hero of William Shakespeare's tragedy of the same name." Still, you'll be thankful for such prosaic entries as they explain Irish myth and locate historical allusions. All in all, it's an edition that belongs on any poetry lover's shelf.

HASH(0xa2ea2c9c) étoiles sur 5 magnificent poems on cheap paper 24 octobre 2005
Par Barnaby Thieme - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I trust it goes without saying that William Butler Yeats is one of the greatest English-language poets of all time. This volume contains his entire body of verse, and is a magnificent treasure trove that will delight and stun the reader for decades.

I give two stars to the cheap materials used to create this masterpiece. I literally had this book out of the Amazon box for a matter of hours before the cover started to curl of its own accord, as though possessed by a poetry-hating demon. The paper is low-grade and coarse, with an unappealing brownish tinge.

Despite my love of Yeats, I find that I unconsciously tend to keep this book on the shelf just to keep its ugliness out of site, and I am by no means an aesthete. If you can find a slightly nicer version, it is worth paying a little extra.

HASH(0xa2b1af78) étoiles sur 5 A strange, deceptive beauty 11 août 2000
Par An Mhuruch - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When I first started reading Yeats, I was very interested in Old Irish myths. Perhaps more importantly, I was also younger and more romantically inclined than I am nowadays. His early poetry seemed to possess an airy beauty, sweet in the best sense of the word and reminiscent of his contemporary Tagore. I felt bewitched.
Some time later, I read his poems again and felt deceived. They were whimsical, immature, unfinished. I could not understand why he was so highly praised. Whenever somebody told me he/she liked Yeats, I felt an embarrassment. I wondered if I had failed Yeats or if he was the deceiver.
However, when I approached him for the third time, I had a strange experience I can only compare with reading Nietzsche. I read a line or two, they seem too simple and crude. I read them a second time, they become opaque. A third time, they yield and I feel as if playing with a caleidoscope. Now at least I am wiser; I know I will be profoundly touched, annoyed and bored in turns, but I also know I will always return to Yeats, because a quarrel with him is better than a constant love for another poet.

HASH(0xa2b31984) étoiles sur 5 Great reader's copy of the complete canon; not an art piece of bookmaking, but a book to be read 10 février 2009
Par Love Thy.Enemy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This review refers to Finneran's Revised Second Edition (paperback) 8x5x1.25 inches in size.

Much mention made here of the quality of the paper upon which these priceless and comprehensive poems are here printed.

This is a reader's copy, something to carry and to read. It is not furnishings for your room. It is not furniture. It is not personal adornment. This is the book of Life, to be opened, to be read.

Yes your reading may take its toll upon the vulnerable, gentle binding. Yes, your reading may find one day pages browning, of the old paperstock similar to old paperback books. But this book is to be read, not closed and saved and never seen. Read this book.

If you wish a book for adornment more than for reading, a book which may also withstand intensive reading over a lifetime, please go for the more costly The Collected Works of W.B. Yeats Volume I The Poems. You will still use this humble, serviceable paperback book for your daily reading of Yeats, your nightly study of his lyric and lore.

This is the book you may write in with joy and no regrets. It even has extra sheets for such a notation, and generous margins for your personal annotation and other marginalia, the ennegrams which arise upon dreaming with Yeats.

I can add nothing to what has already been said regarding the need within the human soul to read Yeats, to know Yeats, to love Yeats, to feel Yeats nearby throughout our long, lonely pilgrimage here. I can only defend this particular copy of Mr. Yeat's complete selection of his poetry for his official and authorized canon.

You will find much which is useful here, from the great Mr. Finneran, including notes to the notes which Mr. Yeats himself wrote for his poetry. You will find the indexes you will need, of first lines, etc. You will not find someone to help you find from which particular poem those famous words we so often here, which have entered our daily speech, and which first appeared with Mr. Yeats, now used in so many cultural contexts, for instance: Things Fall Apart: A Novel. "The center will not hold . . ." For this you need to type in every word and do a search; perhaps this is done elsewhere, perhaps through the ambitious Kindle project at its own edition of this most valuable book: COLLECTED POEMS OF W.B. YEATS.

But above all, read this book, each day. Do not be ashamed by the humble appearance of its paper, any more than you would by the appearance of the poor old woman who becomes Ireland herself. This is the book you can live with, like the old boots you wear each day, which carry you through your work, which though scuffed and scratched and nicked and marked, get you to get the job done, generously, unknown, humble, generously.

Be not ashamed by this book. Read her, and you grow to love her, to know pride, and joy, and to love.

Read this now. And also see of course Our Secret Discipline: Yeats and Lyric Form.

HASH(0xa2ea2c24) étoiles sur 5 Hauntingingly beautiful, ageless poetry! 11 septembre 2005
Par Shirley Schwartz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I had never taken the time to enjoy Yeats' poetry before although I had read single poems on occasion. It is an experience not to be missed to sit and read his better-known poetry all in one sitting. The beauty of the words and imagery is then much more apparent. Yeats writes a lot about mysticism and the occult, and ancient Ireland comes alive as you read his beautiful words. I read that Yeats, although he wrote poetry all his life, would only put down three or four lines per day. He was such a perfectionist that he wanted to make sure that his lines were perfect. It seems such a tedious procss, but what beautiful words he wrote! His time could not have been better spent than in creating three beautiful and perfect lines per day. His poetry changed as he aged, but it kept getting better and better. His earlier poetry portrayed a lot about faeries and the dream world the he lived in himself when he was young. The lyrics were tuneful and romantic. As he aged, the romanticism changed considerably and his poems were harder-driven with very deep messages underneath the words. These are truly masterpieces, and Yeats comes by his reputation as one of the greatest English writing poets of all time.
