The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats: Revised Second Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The complete, standard edition of the verse of Ireland's greatest lyric poet, including poems from Yeats's plays and essays — edited by internationally acclaimed Yeats scholar Richard J. Finneran.

With this definitive edition of the poems of the beloved Irish poet William Butler Yeats, Scribner assumes the publication of The Collected Works of W. B. Yeats series: 14 volumes, overseen by eminent Yeats scholars Richard J. Finneran and George Mills Harper, representing virtually all of the Nobel Laureate's published work, and including authoritative and explanatory notes. The first five volumes in the Collected Works series were originally published by Macmillan; the remaining nine volumes, including the heart of Yeats's body of work, will be brought out by Scribner on lists to come.

Providing accurate texts of all of the poems by Yeats published in his lifetime or scheduled for publication at the time of his death, including those omitted from earlier collections, The Poems is the top-selling of the Collected Works volumes, and it has been in demand steadily since its original appearance in 1989.

Synopsis:

The authorized canon of one of the world's most beloved poets, this is a collection of every poem William Butler Yeats approved for publication during his lifetime.

Synopsis:

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, occasionally 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 in paperback.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references and indexes.
