Romantic Visionary By W.B. Yeats This book is a collection Of Yeats Poetry from 1889 to 1939. His poems got better as he wrote toward the end of his life. Some of his poems reflected a love not returned. My favorite in this collection is the" Winding Star ". A book of poems you can pick up 6 months later and just reflect on your favorite ones. I had this book in my library.

A nice collection of poems to relax and reflect on that I could read again and again and thoroughly enjoy anew each time.
Some of my favourite poetry.
I loved this book. The poetry was divine. The poems themselves were arranged by date written. There was a wonderful introduction written by O. B. Duane. I learned more from those few pages than I had expected. The book also contained a chronology of Mr. Yeat's life, an index to first lines, and the illustrations were beautiful paintings done by various artists.

Inspiring little anthology with losts of historical and biographical detail.
My favourite poems were: The Stolen Child
He Wishes for the Clothes of Heaven
A Coat and The Mermaid.

Although I enjoyed a few of the poems, most of the time W.B. Yeats does not speak to my heart. Perhaps I just do not understand his genius.
This collection was quite small but excellent. I loved the mythic poems like "Song of Wandering Aengus."
