The Poems of W.B. Yeats : A Routledge Study Guide and Sourcebook, Hardback Book

The Poems of W.B. Yeats : A Routledge Study Guide and Sourcebook Hardback

Edited by Michael O'Neill

Part of the Routledge Guides to Literature series

Description

Deeply involved with Irish culture and history, W. B. Yeats (1865-1939) is one of the greatest poets writing in the last two centuries.

This sourcebook provides essential help for readers who wish to learn more about his powerful, haunting poems. Considering Yeats's early, dreamily evocative poems as well as his passionate, tension-ridden later work, Michael O'Neill offers a refreshingly clear discussion of: *contexts - through an invaluable, accessible overview, a detailed chronology and contemporary documents revealing Yeats's understanding of his vocation as a poet; *interpretations - through helpfully introduced extracts from criticism of Yeats's work, ranging from early responses through to modern critical texts; *key poems - in a section where insightful commentary accompanies the full annotated text of many of Yeats's major poems; *further reading - to guide those interested in additional study. This sourcebook is ideal for those new to Yeats's poetry or those who wish to look deeper into its workings, its reception and the contexts from which it emerged.
