    One thought on “A Reader's Guide to William Butler Yeats.”

    1. Excellent old fashioned critical discussion of Yeats' poems with a general introduction followed by one chapter on each of Yeats' collections. I was advised to read this while rereading the Collected: read a collection of poems, then read the relevant chapter in the Guide, then reread the collection he'd discussed. It is slow but well worth it even if you think you know Yeats' poems well.If good criticism has the ability to surprise and send you back to the poems you thought you knew, then this [...]

    2. This is the best starting point for any close-reading study of Yeats. It's imaginative, full of suggestions for future work, very interpretative. I enjoyed reading it. I would full-heartedly recommend it.
