Perfect, very much like Chronicles vol. 1. Or maybe it's the other way 'round and Dylan's Yeatsian. Two great, very similar books, though. Books that you never really read, you just keep revisiting. Yeats writes simply, sumptuously, clearly. Then once a page he'll give an image or metaphor that, no matter how simple it inherently is, blows yah mind.
