The Yeats Reader: A Portable Compendium of Poetry, Drama, and Prose
The Yeats Reader is the most comprehensive single volume to display the full range of Yeats's talents.
It presents more than one hundred and fifty of his best-known poems — more than any other compendium — plus eight plays, a sampling of his prose tales, and excerpts from his published autobiographical and critical writings.
In addition, an appendix offers six early texts of poems that Yeats later revised. Also included are selections from the memoirs left unpublished at his death and complete introductions written for a projected collection that never came to fruition. These are supplemented by unobtrusive annotation and a chronology of the life.
