    Story
    (11)

    The Nobel Laureate's early poetry is suffused with the radiant lyricism of Irish folklore and myth; the yearning romance and distinctly Irish voice of these first works have inspired scores of poets.

    Joseph Marcus says: "Outstanding compilation of Yeats's Short Poems"
    "Wondrously good!"
    Overall

    I can't fathom the low ratings on this audio. The readers are some of the most compellingly good voices/readers I've ever heard. I could listen to these people read the phone book! I really enjoy the selections in this collection also. I'm actually not really a fan of poetry usually. What little poetry I have enjoyed has almost always been Emily Dickinson, but I've come to love Yeats solely based on my experience with this audio performance. Could the audio be remastered and cleaned up? Yes. It's definitely not crystal clear and artifact free, but it's not so bad as to be utterly distracting. In fact, I find this enjoyable enough to fall asleep to which, considering I'm a hardcore insomniac averaging 2-3 hours of sleep a night, is a huge endorsement.
