William Butler Yeats One of the best-known collections of W. B. Yeats' prose, The Celtic Twilight explores the old connection between the Irish people and the magical world of fairies. Yeats, by traveling the land in the early 20th century and talking to the common people about their experiences with the creatures, yielded a colorful overview of Celtic fairy folklore.
William Butler Yeats William Butler Yeats, the first Irishman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, is not only one of the greatest poets of the 20th century but one of the most widely read. The landscape, myths, legends, and folklore of his homeland lie at the heart of his poetic imagination, and the unique musicality of Ireland adds to the richness of his verse. But the themes of his poetry are universal and timeless: the conflict between life and death, love and hate, and the meaning of man’s existence in an imperfect world.
This collection includes such favorites as “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” and “When You Are Old”, as well as two of his longer narrative works, “The Old Age of Queen Maeve” and “Baile and Aillinn”. It traces the poet’s artistry from his early days as a dreamy, late-romantic poet into one of the most individual and visionary voices of 20th-century verse.
William Butler Yeats William Butler Yeats's early poetry is suffused with the radiant lyricism of Irish folklore and myth; the yearning romance and distinctly Irish voice of these first works of the Nobel laureate have inspired scores of poets. This splendid selection offers a distinctive sampling of the Yeatsian voice.
Among the many famed works included are "The Stolen Child","The Everlasting Voices", "Reconciliation", and "The Song of the Wandering Aengus". Each of these poems is filled with the sparkling magic and mysticism Yeats absorbed as a boy in Ireland. This sweetness is juxtaposed against an anguished realism grounded in the master poet's nationalist and political sympathies.
Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Butler Yeats, Henry Longfellow, Emily Dickinson & John Keats For many of us Autumn, or as the Americans would say; Fall is the season of mixed emotions. Summer's long days are replaced by a chill in the air. The colours on the trees and fields ripen to warmer hues and the harvest is brought safely home. Yet with this bounty there is the knowledge that Nature is turning her attention to the harder, colder Winter month's ahead. Our collection of poems amplifies this balance between the loss of summer and the gain of the harvest with wonderful poems by such notables as Shelley, Yeats, Keats, Sheehan, Emily Dickinson and Longfellow.
This collection is read for you by Ghizela Rowe and Gideon Wagner. We hope you've enjoyed this collection which is one of four in the Seasons collection.

William Butler Yeats This is the second collection of poetry by WB Yeats, first published in 1893, with a new foreword by poet and actor Tim Dalgleish.
This is a beautiful collection of poetry that translates the 2,000-year-old mythos of Ireland into words that inspire and touch the mind, body, and spirit of any listener. This audio narration includes music between the poems which underscores and enhances the mood of romance and thoughtfulness.
The rose stands for Ireland, but also for Yeats unrequited love Maud Gonne. The poems are romantic and symbolic and once read or listened to, root themselves in one's psyche. The famous "Lake Isle of Innisfree" is included, but essentially, Yeats intended this poetry to be experienced as a collection as presented here in its original published format. The scent of mystical poetic genius rises from every word. This is the Celtic Twilight brought to life.

William Butler Yeats, William Blake & Walt Whitman Poetry is often cited as our greatest use of words. The English language has well over a million of them and poets down the ages seem, at times, to make use of every single one. But often they use them in simple ways to describe anything and everything from landscapes to all aspects of the human condition. Poems can evoke within us an individual response that takes us by surprise; that opens our ears and eyes to very personal feelings. Forget the idea of classic poetry being somehow dull and boring and best kept to children's textbooks. It still has life, vibrancy and relevance to our lives today. Where to start? How to do that? Poetry can be difficult. We've put together some very eclectic poetry, with a broad range of poets and themes, to entice you and seduce you with all manner of temptations. In this hour we introduce poets of the quality and breadth of Robert Browning and William Butler Yeats as well themes on music, Ireland, lesbians and more.
