Sometimes, I really wish Yeats had never written prose. Or plays. His poetry is quite good, obviously, although I know that I find him very difficult to read because it is nearly impossible for me to find the rhythm of his language (with very few exceptions). Still, this is a good selection of poems etc and the background information (except for one or two literary crit pieces that are a little too "this is a piece of literary criticism!") is very handy. Good footnotes, which I always appreciate!
