COLLECTED POEMS OF W.B. YEATS
COLLECTED POEMS OF W.B. YEATS | William Butler Yeats
The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats includes all of the poems authorized by Yeats for inclusion in his standard canon. Breathtaking in range, it encompasses the entire arc of his career, from luminous reworkings of ancient Irish myths and legends to passionate meditations on the demands and rewards of youth and old age, from exquisite, ocasionally whimsical songs of love, nature, and art to somber and angry poems of life in a nation torn by war and uprising. In observing the development of rich and recurring images and themes over the course of his body of work, we can trace the quest of this century's greatest poet to unite intellect and artistry in a single magnificent vision. Revised and corrected, this edition includes Yeats's own notes on his poetry, complemented by explanatory notes from esteemed Yeats scholar Richard J. Finneran. The Collected Poems of W. B. Yeats is the most comprehensive edition of one of the world's most beloved poets available.

The Lake Isle of Innisfree
BY WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;

Cuilin There midnight‘s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet‘s wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart‘s core.

Thanks for this giveaway opportunity @Amandajoy

There isn‘t just one book that inspired my trip to Ireland 🇮🇪 and my vacation wasn‘t completely literary themed, but I did spend a good portion seeing where some of these authors & poets lived.

JoyNorstrom Way before the television show (2004/5?), my mother and I traveled to Scotland in part because of the Outlander series. We stayed in some of the key towns, visited Culloden, etc. My mother was single and loves to embarrass me so told everyone she was searching for her own Jamie. 😂 5y
wanderinglynn @JoyNorstrom That sounds like a fabulous trip! (Well, except the embarrassing part - although that sounds like something my mom would do too!) z😂 5y

One of my favorite poets. The Lake Isle of Inisfree always makes me feel at peace. When I️ graduates high school my English teacher gave me a copy of “the song of wandering aengus.” I️ keep copies of both with me and reread it in moments of doubt and anxiety. Here is 1919. #novemberbythenumbers #poetry #day19

Over my heart, and your hair fall over my breast,
Drowning love's lonely hour in deep twilight of rest,
And hiding their tossing manes and their tumultuous feet." #WBYeats

For some reason I can't get this poem out of my head today 🤔

Edit: I think it's super telling that every single person I've come across on Litsy appears to have political views similar to mine. Almost as if the other side isn't so big on the reading ...

BookHermit The third line has been on repeat in my head all week 6y
wanderlustywriter @BookHermit For me it's "And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, slouches towards DC, I mean Bethlehem, to be born?" 6y

‘The work is done,‘ grown old he thought, ‘According to my boyish plan; Let the fools rage, I swerved in naught, Something to perfection brought‘; But louder sang that ghost, ‘What then?‘

A couple of days ago I read an article about 2nd hand books and how they affect the book business because we don't pay the real price of the book and none of the profits goes to the author or the industry which makes those books. But at the same time, 2nd hand books have a lot of pros and cons too. What do you think about it?

P.D.: Nice comic by Jacob Andrews. 😂

WHEN you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
