Yeats is one of the finest literary figures of all time. I am a little prejudice, because he happens to be a favorite of mine. Regardless, he didn't win a Nobel prize because he was a hack.
This book of poetry is from the period of time when he was moving from a more transcendental style of his youth, to a more physical and realistic style. It is part of a wonderful transition to say the least.
I think anyone who enjoys poetry, especially from one of the great masters, will enjoy this volume. The price is also right, so if you don't enjoy the writings of a wonderful mind, you can always delete it from your library.
Read and enjoy!
