    Yeats, Yeats, what can you say? Ireland. Mysticism. Longing. Despair. PO-etry! This is a surprisingly consistent, formidable, subtle and wide ranging oeuvre and I'm not the only person to have overheard the suggestion that Yeats was the greatest poet of the 20th Century. ...

    I told my friend Nichole yesterday that I wasn't planning to live a long life. She said, "Why do you say that?" And I mumbled something about rock stars and creative people. But, I feel that I can become an old man when I read Yeats. This is a favorite: When You are Old WHEN you ...

    The reason everyone digs Shakespeare is not because he was the greatest writer in the modern English language, or because he was even the greatest playwright, but because he had a nice way of putting things, and people like to apply his pithy sentiments to their own lives. This is stup...

    I have given hourlong recitations of Yeats's poems, among the easiest to recall in English; for example, his tetrameters in the late "Under Ben Bulben" which contains his epitaph. I defy you to say this aloud three times without knowing most of it by heart: "Whether man dies in his bed...

    Okay. Cards on the table. I'm not actually that into Yeats. I mean, he's fine, don't get me wrong. Kind of an interesting dude with his Cabalism and his Jacob Black-esque mother-to-daughter romantic transference thing. And some of his poetry I can't deny is pretty impressive stuf...

    "For books continue each other, in spite of our habit of judging them separately." This quote from Virginia Woolf?s A Room of One's Own comes to my mind when I sit down to have a closer look at one of my favourite poets. For it wasn?t Yeats I was searching for when I went throu...

    The poetry was very good but rather depressing. I believe he could have used some happy pills. I would recommend it to all however. Enjoy and Be Blessed. ...
