Running to paradise : Yeats's poetic art by M. L Rosenthal( )

23 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 2,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Running to Paradise, M.L. Rosenthal, hailed by the Times Literary Supplement as 'one of the most important critics of twentieth-century poetry, ' leads us through the lyric poetry and poetic drama of our century's greatest poet in English. His readings shed new, vivid light on Yeats's daring uses of tradition, his love poetry, and the way he faced the often tragic realities of revolution and civil war. Running to Paradise describes Yeats's whole effort--sometimes leavened by wild humor--to convey, with high poetic integrity, his passionate sense of his own life and of his chaotic era. Himself a noted poet, Rosenthal stresses Yeats's artistry and psychological candor. The book ranges from his early exquisite lyrical poems and folklore-rooted plays, through the tougher-minded, more confessional mature work (including the sublime achievement of The Tower), and then to the sometimes 'mad' yet often brilliant tragic or comic writing of his last years

Selected poems and four plays of William Butler Yeats by W. B Yeats( Book )

6 editions published between 1964 and 1996 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its first appearance in 1962, M.L. Rosenthal's classic selection of Yeats's poems and plays has attracted hundreds of thousands of readers. This newly revised edition includes 211 poems and 4 plays. It adds The Words Upon the Window-Pane, one of Yeats's most startling dramatic works in its realistic use of a seance as the setting for an eerily powerful reenactment of Jonathan Swift's vigorous idealism, baffling love relationships, and tragic madness. The collection profits from recent scholarship that has helped to establish Yeats's most reliable texts, in the order set by the poet himself. And his powerful lyrical sequences are amply represented, culminating in the selection from Last Poems and Two Plays, which reaches its climax in the brilliant poetic plays The Death of Cuchulain and Purgatory
