Yeats is one of the most popular poets and this book is a collectable edition of some of his best poems. The poems itself are marvellous. Yeats has a way of words to convey the deepest of meanings in the easiest words. The hardback book that I got from Amazon is really pretty to look at and looks great on the shelf as well. It is 308 pages long. The poems in this book cover a range of topics but most of the poems were romantic and who knows romance better than the renowned poet Yeats. Each poem leaves a deep imprint on the reader’s mind and conveys Yeats’ philosophy of life. Some of my favourite poems in the book were ‘The Second Coming’, ‘The Stolen Child’ and ‘When You Are Old’. Since the book showcases one of Yeats best works, it becomes quite evident why he was the first Irishmen to get Nobel Prize in Literature.
I would recommend this book to all those who have an interest in poetry. W.B Yeats is one poet whom everyone should read at least once in their life. His poetry instills deep empathy and compassion in a reader.
